Burning the Future: Coal in America Reviews

March 10, 2008
[Director] Novack has a dual focus: the U.S. consumption of coal, which accounts for just more than half the nation's energy, and 'mountaintop removal,' whereby companies, instead of actually mining, do a man-made Mount St. Helens.

David Novack's documentary Burning the Future: Coal in America is as upsetting as it is informative.

Pic deeply entrenches itself in the landscape, conveying both the beauty and the ravagement of the Appalachians.

[David] Novack's...inability to tell a compelling story makes it difficult for us to summon outrage.
