"In 39 years, I have never written these words in a movie review, but here they are:
"You owe it to yourself to see this film.
"If you do not, and you have grandchildren, you should explain to them why you decided not to."
-- Roger Ebert, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
Gore's 'Inconvenient Truth' is highly watchable
"Al Gore's 40-year-long passion on the subject of global warming shines through powerfully and lights up An Inconvenient Truth. What could have been mired in political rhetoric or techno-speak is instead illuminating, fascinating and sometimes frightening. A thought-provoking cautionary tale that is also lively and entertaining, An Inconvenient Truth showcases the dedication, warmth and, yes, charm of the former vice president." ~ Claudia Puig, USA TODAY
"An Inconvenient Truth" by DAVID DENBY
The New Yorker, Issue of 2006-06-12
"The science is detailed, deep-layered, vivid, and terrifying. Every school, college, and church group, and everyone else beyond the sway of General Motors, ExxonMobil, and the White House should see this movie, and, with luck, they will.
"It's great propaganda, but there are also passages in which Gore, off camera, speaks in an intimate voice that we've never heard before. He talks about lying beside a river on a lazy summer day-the commonplace idyll of a lone person in a tranquil ecstasy, utterly at home in nature. "An Inconvenient Truth" begins that way, and each time Gore returns to this enraptured mood, after a procession of nightmares and dangers, it has greater resonance.
"He knows that people find him exasperating, and he has learned to modulate his voice; one has the impression of a complex personality that has gone through loss, humiliation, a cruel breaking down of the ego, and then has reintegrated itself at a higher level.
"In the movie he is merely excellent. But in person-he is on a speaking tour to promote the movie-he presents a combination of intellectual force, emotional vibrancy, and moral urgency that has hardly been seen in American public life in recent years. It will be interesting to watch how skeptics will deal with Gore's bad news on the environment without making themselves look very small."
