Inconvenient Truth, An

Synopsis
Davis Guggenheim’s film is based on one of a series of lectures given by former presidential candidate Al Gore to make people aware of the the dangers of global warming. It breaks up Gore’s delivery by illustrating his points with film footage, much of which features the former Democratic nominee exploring the globe as he examines the effects of global warming. Gore’s speech is neatly divided between calm recitations of the facts about the issue and several stories of a personal nature. His skills as an orator are considerable, and it’s hard not to be alarmed by most of what he has to say.
