Movie Review - An Inconvenient Truth
Well I finally saw An Inconvenient Truth and I have to say I was very impressed with what Gore accomplished in this film. I was impressed by his passion, his commitment to a cause, his intelligence and the clarity of his message. Whether you agree with him or not, you can't help but notice that what used to be a wooden speaker has transformed into a charming, warm and humour person. An excellent platform to launch another run at the presidency. Looking over the current field of Democrats - you do a lot worse.
By delving into Gore's personal tragedies and setbacks (the near-fatal accident of his son, his sister's death from lung cancer and his oh-so-close loss of the 2000 presidential election), you see a vulnerability not often displayed by public figures. But with the polarization of politics in the U.S., there is a segment of American society that will never acknowledge Gore or his message.
