A Crude Awakening: The Oil Crash Reviews

Rich Cline
Shadows on the Wall

The facts in this documentary are astoundingly sobering, and yet society continues to keep its head buried in the sand. By avoiding any political slant, the filmmakers forcefully get the message across.

This is London

All sorts of experts testify with some conviction, but the film's jerky structure and lack of complexity don't help.

Xan Brooks

A horribly enlightening documentary.

Kevin Maher
Times [UK]

An informative and unashamedly apocalyptic documentary about the world's obsession with oil that makes An Inconvenient Truth look positively chipper.

November 9, 2007

A compelling documentary, wrought with a dry rationalism and presenting the horrifying case of the stuff that's both "the bloodstream of the world economy" and "the excrement of the devil".

A chilling picture of coming global crisis fuelled by our lack of fuel.

if it doesn't give you at least a nightmare or two, then it's hard to imagine what exactly would frighten you

It's every bit as motivational as An Inconvenient Truth, and just as scary

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

As the puzzle interlocks, the composite truth is terrifying. A second horseman of social collapse is pounding towards us--peak oil.

You leave a viewing with a sense of utter defeat. I can envision a future DVD special edition that comes with a razor blade, to facilitate wrist slashing.

Kevin Williamson
Jam! Movies

A dry, depressing film that, frankly, isn't entertaining enough to make anyone but the truly masochistic fork over $14 to hear how the world as we know it is going to end.
