The BF and I went to the 8:25 show of An Inconvenient Truth at the ArcLight last night. (No, we didn’t take public transportation; yes, we carpooled.)
I’m pleased to report that (a), the theater was close to full; (b), the fine citizens of Los Angeles asked mostly non-whackjob questions of director Davis Guggenheim in the surprise Q&A with L.A. film critic Jean Oppenheimer; and (c), the film and its central device, Al Gore and his little slideshow on the environment, are spellbinding.
I don’t even care if you debunkers want to jump on me or the film for ignoring “the other side” of the global warming argument; just go see the film this weekend anyway. Seriously. I mean, you should see it in order to debate it properly, right? And believe me, if nothing else, An Inconvenient Truth is a great, compelling film of a great, compelling presenter. And I do mean great.
