Ebert review: An inconvenient Truth

Roger Ebert urgently wants you to see this movie. A hardened film reviewer, turned into a gushing admitted advocate for a documentary about Global Warming.
Am I acting as an advocate in this review? Yes, I am. I believe that to be "impartial" and "balanced" on global warming means one must take a position like Gore's. There is no other view that can be defended.
This movie might get an audience to rival Fahrenheit 9/11. The Oil Industry is facing the kind of perfect storm of public rage at Republicans, disgust with obscene executive compensation and linkage of US oil interests with the enormously unpopular Iraq war that has the potential to lead to government intervention of a trust-busting scale .
