[Collapse] is as much a backwards look at recent history, as well as a prediction for the coming change.

A staggering film about a man convinced he's the only poor son of a gun who gets it ... and how, as he grows to realize he might have actually been right all those years, it destroys him

If he's even half right, the world our children and grandchildren will inherit doesn't bear thinking about.

Unearths the flawed humanity behind the apocalyptic theorising.

Chris Smith's documentary centres on a long and disquieting interview with Michael Ruppert, a radical American activist on a mission to expose the "peak oil" cover-up...
September 30, 2010
Smith treats Ruppert both as exhibit and patient, and he comes across as an angry yet compassionate man, secure in his convictions but lost in his emotions.

There are clear parallels with former US vice-president Al Gore's arguments in An Inconvenient Truth, only Smith's film makes less use of showbiz-style graphics.

Intelligently probed by director Chris Smith and always compelling to watch, the chain-smoking Ruppert's vision of the future should be on everyone's viewing list.

Rich on rhetoric, if sometimes a little loopy in the ideas beneath.

Take Michael Ruppert with several thousand grains of salt, but take him seriously, at least for 80 minutes. Chris Smith does, and thats what makes Collapse so riveting.

Chris Smith and his documentary team smartly focus their attention on the world fuel crisis, leaving many other issues discussed by [Michael] Ruppert to the deleted scenes portion of the DVD.

The only problem with "Collapse" is Smith's failure to prod Ruppert a little harder, especially on the subject of his 9/11 Truther status.
March 12, 2010
Ruppert's deep sighs, dramatic pauses and a slight sneer on his lips say that he doesn't care what you think because he knows he's right, but he forgives your ignorance.
January 27, 2010
You might disagree with every point made during Collapse but it's unnerving all the same.

Whether you consider Ruppert prophetic or paranoid, hearing his sobering thoughts on the collapse of industrialized civilization is a thought-provoking experience. Thought-provoking and scary.
