An Inconvenient Truth

I was actually pretty disappointed with this film. I don’t even know if you can really call it a film more like a glorified PowerPoint presentation. I love the environment and was really excited to see this film, especially with the hype it had received when it was first released. I felt it was very manipulative, almost propaganda like. There are other sides and ideas about global warming that Al Gore simply ignores. Ultimately I felt this piece was made to glorify Al gore and his position as an environmentalist.
I felt the shots of Al in the car, on his laptop, waiting for a plane were not needed and made me like him less. I actually had a hard time staying awake watching this film. I did like in his presentation when he used the lift to demonstrate his point about global warming. I thought that was an engaging fun way to get the audience paying attention. I guess I just feel the environment is really important and I did not feel this movie inspired me to help save the earth rather it made me realize that Al Gore is involved in giving presentations about global warming. Some of the facts he used I would really like to see the Parameters to as well. I think if I were to make a similar film I would include more visuals of the problem and less of me presenting. Also I did not feel like the film gave enough information on what I can do to heal the world.
