Somehow or other, form and intent mesh together utterly seamlessly.

It's not as focused as its predecessor, but its best sequences rehydrate the mind.

Stand out scenes would work as well as stills in a photography book.

The sorts of visuals the filmmakers capture are nothing short of astounding...yet while the imagery is beautiful, its implications are often dire.

No glaring message, in fact no narration, just gorgeous 5K ultra-high-def images.

They've found a way of serving up these images without seeming callous or exploitative or preachy.

Newcity

Grave, momentous, lush, threatening, engulfing, the HD imagery surveying the epic scale of bodies of water and the thrash and volume of currents and spill-off is keenly beautiful.

As in Manufactured Landscapes, the long shots of natural and man-made environments have a patterned, abstract beauty that often chafes against the ugly truth on the ground.

It relies heavily on visuals and offers minimal context. The project has a pro-environment feeling, which comes across implicitly, not through browbeating or preaching.

The movie, which does drag at times, puts into perspective what an impact we've had on the planet and its lifeblood.

At 92 minutes, the production is stately, unhurried yet crisply focused, never overstaying its welcome.

Here's a case of images in the service of important ideas, rather than entertainment, yet they could hardly be more powerful, from roaring torrents released by a dam in China to a lyrical helicopter shot of a glistening river in British Columbia.

Always arresting and sometimes troubling, "Watermark" - aside from the odd comment here and there - neither lectures nor argues.

The Dissolve

Documentaries that shove a message down viewers' throats are a drag, but it's possible to place too much emphasis on aesthetics at the expense of a thesis. Still, if one must err in one direction or the other, this direction is preferable.

By keeping explanatory talking-heads interviews to a minimum, the filmmakers put their trust in the audience to draw their own conclusions based on what they present to us.

Without a single statistic or news story about climate change appearing on screen, Jennifer Baichwal and Edward Burtynsky's new film Watermark offers an ocean of evidence about how humankind is changing the planet.
