** During Moore's interview with Charlton Heston, Kayla's murder is brought up, causing Heston to deem the interview over. Moore doesn't do anything else, he only leaves a picture of Kayla Rolland by his door. Even though it's clearly set up for the camera in order to make Heston look bad it's still touching.

* DocumentaryOfLies: Much of this film was infamously made up of selectively edited footage, particularly his edits of several of Charlton Heston's speeches down into one, or his edit of buying a gun in a bank. Also many of the statistics used in the film are juiced up to make gun violence in America look worse than it is, among numerous other misleading or outright false statements.

Added DiffLines:

* OvershadowedByControversy: This is a very polarizing movie, especially among right wing people who don't like it for the overall criticism on gun ownership and the fact that Creator/MichaelMoore made it. That said, even some left wing people who favor gun control have mixed feelings about some scenes in the film. However, it must be said that the movie is more than just a "guns are bad" propaganda flick. Moore debunks some common theories anti-gun activists have about guns too. For instance, he shows that there are other countries who also have a violent past and the right to bare arms too, yet where the amount of gun-related accidents and murders is far lower in comparison to the USA. The movie made Moore the most recognizable documentary maker on Earth, but this also made it more difficult for him to go out and film somewhere without immediately being stopped by guards who recognize him. It can even be argued whether the film actually did his career any good. On one hand his next movies attracted large crowds of curious people and supporters, on the other hand many Michael Moore haters refuse to watch his next films just because he made them. Which is unfortunate as his movies do address interesting topics and arguments that are open for debate.

*** Don't believe that. As discussed elsewhere in entries on Moore, that part was selectively edited to trash Heston's reputation.
