Bowling for Columbine (2002)

Filmmaker Michael Moore is an essayist, not a reporter. This film offers his take on guns and violence in America. Whether you love it or hate it, the film will leave you mad.

The Omega Man (1971)

There are hundreds of movies that celebrate, condemn, and/or explore the impact of guns on American history—so why should you watch this one? In this life-imitates-art classic Charlton Heston plays the last human on earth after an apocalyptic biochemical war. But he is not completely alone—a "family" of nocturnal mutants roam the streets attempting to destroy Heston and the technologically-mad society he represents. Equipped with a Smith & Wesson submachine gun and a Browning Automatic Rifle, Heston fends them off. If those d--n mutants want his guns, they will have to pry them from his cold, dead hands.
