To polluters everywhere, the truth of this profound documentary was indeed inconvenient. "An Inconvenient Truth" features former U.S. vice-president Al Gore as he criss-crossed the world to educate millions on the need to conserve energy and act against the ravages of climate change will win director Davis Guggenheim's film on global warming several accolades this awards season. The documentary film was astounding as it recalled the pain that the hole in the Ozone layer and the world's climate has already changed ten-fold.
Some of its facts are jaw-dropping. Dubbed a "horror movie" without the violence, "An Inconvenient Truth" is a wake up call for the world. Undoubtedly the most important film of the last 25 years.
