Filmmaker Michael Moore explores the roots of America's predilection for gun violence.
The quote of Charlton Heston saying "From my cold dead hands!" was from the NRA convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, in spring 2000.
Yes, it was a glorious time to be an American.
As Charlton Heston walks away from Michael Moore in the final interview, the scene cuts repeatedly between Heston (point of view from behind Moore) and Moore (point of view from the stairs directly in front of Moore) holding a photo of the slain Flint, Michigan girl and asking Heston to look at it. When the POV is of Moore holding the photo, there is clearly no cameraman anywhere behind him. The same with the POV of Heston, there is clearly no cameraman anywhere in front of Moore. So the two POVs were not filmed simultaneously as the film implies.
During the opening, archive footage is presented that claims the movie is presented by the National Rifle Association (NRA).
