Movie Info

Since the end of World War II, American families have steadily moved away from large cities into suburban areas, with little thought to the ecological costs of suburban life. Creating neighborhoods with large single-family homes that require significant amounts of energy to heat and are located an inconvenient distance from schools, shopping centers, and employment districts that demand the daily use of automobiles, suburbs are remarkably inefficient communities built around the notion that fossil fuels will always be inexpensive and readily available. However, many experts have speculated that the Earth's supply of oil and natural gas is rapidly dwindling, and that the amount available may throw the world into a global, political, and economic crisis in the foreseeable future. The End of Suburbia: Oil Depletion and the Collapse of the American Dream is a documentary which examines the rise of the suburban lifestyle, the costs to the Earth and the economy of our current living habits, where we may be headed, and how this situation can be remedied. Canadian journalist Barrie Zwicker serves as narrator.

This is fascinating subject matter presented in an amateurish way. The interviews are okay, but nothing is visually interesting. There's a lot of same-idea regurgitation going on, as well.

An eye-opening and startling revelation about the mathematics of supply and demand of energy and its inevitable impact on our way of life. I urge everyone and anyone to see one of the most crucial documentaries ever made.

This movie made me re-think everything. A lot is going to change real soon. Most people aren't ready for it.
