All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (5)

  • In short, it's pretty but dull.

    July 23, 2010 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • An extraordinarily eloquent synthesis of imagery and urgency.

  • A handsome-looking, if narratively inert, piece of propaganda filmmaking.

    July 6, 2010 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Energized by neither music nor narration, and without the essential urgency of facts and figures, the result is a series of finely polished but relentlessly dull snapshots lapped by rising tides and melting permafrost.

    July 2, 2010 | Rating: 2/5
  • At a time when most advocacy documentaries aim for righteous fury, Tomoko Kana's Beautiful Islands is so gentle that it's practically radical by comparison.

    July 22, 2010 | Full Review…
  • Breathtaking, captivating and inspirational. It's a non-preachy, vital wake-up call for all of mankind.

    July 1, 2010 | Rating: 9.62/10 | Full Review…
