Still an eco-sceptic? Clap your eyes on this lot. Awe-inspiring, terrifying, transcendently beautiful, and absolutely weighted with significance for the future of the planet.
The most important documentary of the year.
"Chasing Ice" is a grand adventure, a visual amazement and a powerful warning.
If you're looking for eye-popping evidence that the world's glaciers are melting, don't miss the small-scale but spectacular documentary, Chasing Ice.
The rapid disappearance of ice mountains, filmed over a period of years, is compressed through time-lapse technology into minutes and seconds. The speeded-up effect is harrowing and also, disturbingly, eerily beautiful.
The movie might have given us a bit less of Balog and a bit more of the startling sequences he produced.
[A] spectacular but depressing documentary.
Orlowski's documentary is brilliant because of the wondrous way it shows a worldwide story and a personal one at the same time.
While their persistence is remarkable, it is rewarded by the breathtaking yet heartbreaking images obtained. In every location, they find irrefutable evidence of the dramatic degradation of the planet's glaciers.
As a documentary, it offers most of its likely viewers grim confirmation of what they already know, rather than the thrill of discovery.
Less a didactic 'message-movie' than a study of one man's steely determination, the debut helmer directs with a sure hand and no-frills aesthetic.
Beautiful, affecting documentary about glacier retreat.
A terrifying film that offers both a stunning collection of images and an indisputable evidence of global climate change. It is only a pity, though, that it loses some of its focus wanting to praise Balog's efforts and doesn't propose any real scientific solution for the problem.
One of the most visually stunning documentaries I have ever seen, Chasing Ice is a testament to the power of film to serve as clear-cut evidence of a changing world, as well as proof of why that world is worth preserving.
Photographer James Balog sets up cameras to document the disappearance of glaciers.
Most documentaries about global warming and other such social problems take an alarmist stance and quickly become so over-bearing in their message that I find myself saying, "Yes, yes, we're all going to die. I understand. Ho hum." But the film's focus on the process of setting up the cameras and Balog's courageousness makes it more about the process than pounding depressing evidence into my head.
Balog's photographs are striking. They're beautifully tragic, just as they are intended to be.
Overall, this is a good documentary about an important social problem, and its strength is that it doesn't try to beat the shit out of any happiness you might still be able to muster.
We are all concerned about the earth's poles in this day and era. "Chasing Ice" Documents James Balog an acclaimed Natianal Geographic photographer's journey to find some physical evidence about Climate Change. Setiing up mutiple cameras in a single area in Iceland, Greenland, Montanna and Alaska. The results are pretty shocking, after three years of observing the photos we find a big difference in the stucture of some of the biggest glaciers in the world. I've never seen so many massive calvings of ice that it almost looks like a whole city area is going up in an earthquake. Viewers really do feel the emotion and determination for Balog who has a knee problem, but that dosen't stop him from explroring the dangerous impact the ice world has suffered to climate change. Conventionally shot in a very informative manner, "Chasing Ice" is essential for all enviromentalists and common viewers.
