Movie Info

Blood on the Mountain is a searing investigation into the economic and environmental injustices that have resulted from industrial control in West Virginia. This new feature documentary details the struggles of a hard-working, misunderstood people, who have historically faced limited choices and have never benefited fairly from the rich, natural resources of their land. Blood On The Mountain delivers a striking portrait of a fractured population, exploited and besieged by corporate interests, and abandoned by the powers elected to represent them.


Critic Reviews for Blood On The Mountain

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (9) | Rotten (1)

  • "Blood on the Mountain" is unapologetic about its one-sided viewpoint: the lawyers, academics and miners interviewed are all pro-union. There may be good reason.

  • A project that many history documentaries should aspire to, Blood on the Mountain has much to think about, learn from and never forget.

  • The film may be one-sided, but if nothing else, it is a reminder that the "coal equals jobs" equation is a serious oversimplification.

  • The movie is practically a textbook about how ravenous corporations and feckless government can strip-mine the souls of workers, and replace them with a political narrative about their problems that keeps reality forever hidden behind a fine, dusty fog.

  • If you want to spend an hour and a half watching people who are royally screwed, look no further than the new documentary Blood on the Mountain.

  • Blood on the Mountain is not overly daring in its formal approach, but the story is so compelling that stylistic bells and whistles are not necessary.
