In short, it's pretty but dull.

At a time when most advocacy documentaries aim for righteous fury, Tomoko Kana's Beautiful Islands is so gentle that it's practically radical by comparison.

A handsome-looking, if narratively inert, piece of propaganda filmmaking.

Energized by neither music nor narration, and without the essential urgency of facts and figures, the result is a series of finely polished but relentlessly dull snapshots lapped by rising tides and melting permafrost.

Breathtaking, captivating and inspirational. It's a non-preachy, vital wake-up call for all of mankind.

Beautiful Islands teases us with delightful Weerasethakul-esque territory only to abruptly replace that promise of wonder with predictable, sterile documentary filmmaking.

A heartbreaking expose' which leaves no doubt that dramatic environmental changes are unfolding at every latitude, whether they be the consequences of human overconsumption of fossil fuels or merely the hand of God.
