Critic Reviews for Elemental

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

Elemental stands out from the perpetual flow of eco-documentaries by at least glancing at some of the personal issues and professional setbacks faced by the activists it portrays.

Elemental speaks to the importance of protecting the natural elements: water, air, earth. It's a beautifully filmed piece, even when it's showing us white clouds of pollutants billowing out of a smokestack.

The filmmakers behind "Elemental" might have done better to commit to a single portrait and been more fearless about avoiding familiar oratory, but small steps are progress too.

The insightful contrasts within the aggregate picture make up for the film's leisurely pace and lack of narrative propulsion.

It's not the message that matters here, but how Elemental reveals the positive and negative sides of obsession and the personal toll it takes on true believers.

Inspirational. It finds just the right balance between entertaining the audience and provoking them emotionally and intellectually.
