Cheney, the great outdoorsman, nearly killed a friend while hunting. That was nothing, however, compared with what he's been doing to thousands of his fellow countrymen.

Allan Hunter

An absorbing, level-headed documentary exposing the way in which nothing is allowed to stand in the path of corporate greed.

Improbably riveting.

By turns shocking and deeply upsetting, Gasland is a powerful, well made eco-documentary that carries a vitally important message.

With the hunt for natural gas likely to be heading to Britain, it's a topical film, although the point could have been made in less time.

While this isn't always an easy film to watch, it does make important and seemingly incontrovertible connections between Washington and big business that should alarm us all.

Gasland may be the first ever American film in which Nixon is the hero. It is the 101st in which Dick Cheney is the villain.

While the hushed tones of Fox's would-be naf commentary slightly grate after a while, his film's images, contrasting natural beauty with industrial horror show, are bracingly effective indeed.

Frankly it's overwhelming. But Fox finds a lucid narrative here with sharp editing, thorough research and a merciful sense of humour.

The lesson is a familiar one but Fox conveys it vividly, contrasting natural beauty with the despoliation wrought by industrial plunder.

Virtually guarenteed to make your blood boil, debut documentariab Fox's remarkably likeable investigation pours forth a persuasive call-to-arms.

GasLand [backs] up its agenda with a calm and comprehensive case of evidence that impassions, not bullies, the audience into action.

An explosive and timely film.

GasLand works by effectively reminding you of that in slightly different ways again and again. It's not subtle, but it's effective.

There is something seriously wrong going on here -- just remember the tap and the fire -- that needs to be fixed sooner rather than later.
