If you see only one movie this year, make it An Inconvenient Truth. It may not be the year's best movie, or its most entertaining, but it's certainly the most terrifyingly crucial. Director Davis Guggenheim does a remarkable job of filming Al Gore's "climate crisis" slide show, somehow making it visually dramatic and compulsively gripping. Gore has moved way beyond the "wooden" presidential candidate who nearly won the 2000 election, and now appears as dynamic, commanding, intelligent and even funny. The film clearly and effectively explains the cause and horrifying effects of global warming, and even takes time out to refute the right wing naysayers, challenging and debunking their best "arguments" against global warming. If the movie has a flaw, it's the gloomy interludes in which Gore talks about his personal road toward this fight. But several humorous bits, such as an animated segment by Matt Groening and his "Simpsons" crew, counterbalance these moments. Melissa Etheridge contributes a song to the closing credits. According to this film, we have ten years in which to turn around the inevitable, and viewers moved to action can start by logging onto climatecrisis.net.

An Inconvenient Truth is an American Academy Award-winning documentary film about climate change, specifically global warming, presented by former United States Vice President Al Gore and directed by Davis Guggenheim. A companion book authored by Gore has been on the paperback nonfiction New York Times bestseller list since June 11, 2006, reaching #1 on July 2, 2006.
The film premiered at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival and opened in New York and Los Angeles on May 24, 2006. Earning $49 million at the box office worldwide, An Inconvenient Truth is the fourth-highest-grossing documentary film to date in the United States, after Fahrenheit 9/11, March of the Penguins and Sicko. The film's distributor, Paramount Classics, is donating 5% of the box office receipts and Gore is donating all of his proceeds from the film to the Alliance for Climate Protection (of which Gore is both founder and chairman). The film was released on DVD by Paramount Home Entertainment on November 21, 2006. An Inconvenient Truth was well received by film critics, scientists, and politicians and won two Academy Awards. Global warming skeptics have criticized the film, calling it "exaggerated and erroneous".
