Movie Info

Inspired by the book of the same name by Philip Shabecoff and informed by advisors like the biologist E.O. Wilson, A FIERCE GREEN FIRE chronicles the largest movement of the 20th century and one of the keys to the 21st. It brings together all the major parts of environmentalism and connects them. It focuses on activism, people fighting to save their homes, their lives, the future - and succeeding against all odds. (c)First Run Features

Critic Reviews for A Fierce Green Fire

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (13) | Rotten (7)

Comprehensively tackles a sprawling subject and keeps things loose and lively.

Boston Globe
Top Critic

Kitchell plods through this worthy material.

Minneapolis Star Tribune
Top Critic

It's a decent overview of the subject, but the film's presentation is unexceptional, and it never hints that there is reasoned opposition to the views it advocates.

Full Review… | March 15, 2013
San Francisco Chronicle
Top Critic

A worthy reminder of how much has been done to help heal our planet's ecological woes as well as how much remains to be achieved.

Los Angeles Times
Top Critic

About as sleepy as a documentary can be.

Full Review… | February 28, 2013
New York Times
Top Critic

There's no consistent narrative thread to carry the film from start to finish, and A Fierce Green Fire fails to open any singular intellectual or psychological point of investigation.

Full Review… | February 26, 2013
Village Voice
Top Critic

Not another documentary exposť of a particular disaster or eco-crime but a history of the environmental movement itself, motivated by the idea that 'our industrial civilization has grown so powerful that it threatens the natural world...'

Full Review… | February 24, 2014
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Manages to make the larger cause relatable by focusing on the individual stories of conservationist leaders and radical activists

Full Review… | October 10, 2013

I agree totally with its politics while abhorring its unimaginative political correctness.

Full Review… | September 16, 2013
Arts Fuse

If the point of A Fierce Green Fire is to dissipate conflict and join all viewers together under one big cause, then it finally succeeds.

Full Review… | May 3, 2013
Combustible Celluloid

There's certainly plenty of material there, but the movie mostly tells us about them rather than showing us.

Full Review… | April 11, 2013
St. Paul Pioneer Press

Essential viewing for those with a social conscience... showcases a rare and cogent macro-portrait skill unmatched in the arena of this topic since An Inconvenient Truth.

Full Review… | March 20, 2013

Maybe the best environmental documentary.

Full Review… | March 20, 2013
East Bay Express

It is expertly edited and features an effective mix of archival footage, stills, and primary-source interviews.

Full Review… | March 15, 2013

Funny to see the rotten reviews of this film as if it were supposed to be entertaining as a romantic comedy. We are in deep shit, brothers and sisters, and this movie gives you and idea of how good people are trying to pull us out of it.

Full Review… | March 1, 2013

[A] clear-eyed and much-needed overview of the modern history of people fighting for nature without even realizing, way back when, that they were also fighting for human beings as an inextricable part of nature...

Full Review… | March 1, 2013
Flick Filosopher

A lucid and prophetic documentary that will rekindle your passion for making your small contribution to saving the planet.

Full Review… | February 28, 2013
Spirituality and Practice

The firector avoids all manner of stylistics, opting instead for the formulaic documentary trifecta of first-person interviews, archival material, and news footage.

Full Review… | February 25, 2013
Slant Magazine

Positively inspiring.
