Movie Review
From Time Out New York magazine, Nov. 22-28

This smarty-pants cousin of An Inconvenient Truth goes easy on the pie charts and graphs, focusing instead on lambasting mercenary global-warming deniers and celebrating a cross-section of individuals trying to do something, however small, about it. Directors Daniel B. Gold and Judith Helfand­—whose 2002 Blue Vinyl explored the hazards of PVC­—are irreverent but not flippant, and their evident conviction that individual activism isn’t futile is a refreshing alternative to the oppressive gloom of most documentaries on the subject of catastrophic climate change. They don’t downplay the material’s seriousness, but they know a spoonful of humor helps the message go down.
