Critic Reviews for H2Oil
H2Oil is a hard-hitting, if thoroughly depressing eco-documentary that demands to be seen.
It never distinguishes between its moving human stories and a general eco-activism, which does nothing much to sharpen their individual cases.
Sadly, the lacklustre expert testimonies and lengthy sequences of executive intransigence in the face of community indignation fail to grab the attention, rendering this a laudable but dull exposÃ© of a growing environmental concern.
"It's the biggest unsustainable development on the planet," says one campaigner, indirectly explaining the need for three films that tell us that. Form and content in perfect harmony.
Walsh's documentary is shot with flair but its message and innovative touches just miss the mark.
