I'll admit I didn't see "An Inconvenient Truth," so I can't say how spiritual it is. But this is the first I've heard of the film being particularly "spiritual." I agree that caring for the Earth is a spiritual need, but from what I've heard, Mr. Gore's movie is basically just a lecture about the issue---you need something more to be a "spiritual" documentary. God bless.

Without a doubt Shakespeare Behind Bars should win. The documentary was inspiring, but with that said I don't think people realize just how much of a transformation William Shakespeare and Curt Tofteland has had on this group of guys. It's a journey that requires soul searching, dedication, and a willingness to grow and prosper as human beings. These guys come to grip with their horrific crimes, and the impact it had on their victims and society. I have watched these men overcome anger issues, pride, and selfishness among many more. I have watched these men cry over revelations they have discovered within themselves, but most importantly I've seen them grow by leaps and bounds. While not a part of the documentary... I had the priviledge of working with this program and this group of guys while I served time in the early to mid nineties. The spirit of this group is alive and very real. More than anything it's touching....

An Inconvenient Truth, hands down, because of the urgent issue of climate change and that we can actually do something about it. As Gore says, it is not so much a political issue, but a moral issue in that our survival, or at least our way of life, on this planet will be significantly challenged if we do not take action and fight global warming.

911 with out a doubt, it brought me to tears to see what really went on that day in New York and what the people went through
