Critic Reviews for Collapse
Ruppert unexpectedly breaks down, weeping openly for the lost future of humanity, and at that moment I was startled at how bad I felt for him -- and how nervous I was, suddenly, that this contemporary Cassandra might just be right.
It's only when he starts to weep for the future of a population that won't heed his warnings that Ruppert shows his humanity. It's made him abandon his cause and quit writing.
There is controversy over Ruppert, and he has many critics. But one simple fact at the center of his argument is obviously true, and it terrifies me.
Collapse will leave you shaken about the future of the planet, and saddened about the shattered life of the messenger.
Collapse" is a grueling peek at a doomsday prophet's rigorous mind but in a sly way also a compassionate look at the strain Ruppert endures from knowing he has only ever been right.
It would have been helpful had Smith put his words into some sort of context, allowing others to assess his theories. Instead there's simply Ruppert, talking, raging and warning, as if his very life depended on it.
Audience Reviews for Collapse
A grim and thought-provoking must-see documentary that should leave you terrified for the doomed future that Michael Ruppert foresees and saddened by the shattered life of a man who has tried his whole life to warn people of something he knows he is right about.
Compelling compilation of all your fears for humankind's future. Generally accurate if a little dismissive of humans' ability to solve the problems we face given our track record. Drives home our need for energy sources which actually provide energy without actually contributing further to the energy demand. A sobering but necessary polemic.
The best doco to chain smoke too EVER!
