The poignant, frightening and visually striking documentary "Windfall" places debate within a very human perspective.

Filmmaker Laura Israel's investigation of how construction of wind turbines in rural New York State impacts local citizens is an important reminder that there are no easy and quick fixes for environmental issues.

A full-throated attack on wind energy, this feature by Laura Israel is one of the most surprising (and depressing) eco docs I've seen in years.

A stunning debut, with a fascinating subject, an array of plain-folk talking heads, and precious access to a besieged community.

Ms. Israel's movie proves, once again, that the best nonfiction cinema possesses the same attributes as good fiction: Strong characters, conflict, story arc, visual style.

A veteran film editor making her first feature, Israel emphasizes the area's low-key beauty.

It's a microcosmic version of the political divisions - between left and right, environmentalists and free-marketers, corporations and citizens - that have virtually paralyzed our republic.

The unbridled scare tactics cast too big a shadow over the agit-prop doc Israel ended up making.

"Windfall" left me disheartened. I thought wind energy was something I could believe in.

Whatever the legitimate arguments Windfall makes against the industry it targets, Meredith's feuding becomes just as inaccessible as the windmills that incite it.

Prescriptive eco docs are rarely as attuned to the folly of human ingenuity as this one or as insightful on our knee-jerk demand for impossibly easy solutions.

A much needed second look at the promise of wind energy, so often put forward with scant attention to the impact of 400 foot monstrosities on the people suffering such "progress" in their midst.

Variably articulate subjects drone on and on in an 83-minute film that could easily make its TV news-style point in a half-hour or less.
