Critic Reviews for Catching the Sun

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

While it's admittedly refreshing to see a documentary taking a decidedly sunnier, pro-active approach to pressing environmental issues, "Catching the Sun" could have benefited from a more concentrated focus.

With new solar panels, a woman sees her energy bill go from $80 to $5. 'I'm not havin' to pay nothin'!' High time we had an exciting documentary about climate change!
