Really? And you've seen his films on various topics?

I've only seen "Bowling for Columbine" and "Fahrenheit 9/11". I also enjoyed "TV Nation" during its brief run. He is pretty good at making jabs and pointing out other folks' hypocrisy, and he can be pretty funny sometimes.

However, whenever I've heard him try to articulate his own position on anything, it just devolves into name-calling, oversimplification, and hard-headed nonsense. Those films I saw included interviews with some very intelligent folks who had interesting things to say, but the films themselves were strung together into such sloppy, disorganized, cheap-shot filled jumbles that I can't bring myself to watch any more of his work, even though I do agree with many of the political positions that he makes a mess of.
