In addition to the film's gentle activism comes a lovely perspective on life and our orientation to consumption that almost feels like antidote to the destructive "progress" that bests the explorers' paths.

If we're going to keep getting documentaries about the environment -- and let's face it, we are -- 180 Degrees South suggests an original way to structure them.

The film's a meandering affair. The camera's attention flits here and there -- Look! A mountain! Look! A valley! Look! A beach!
