Before ending on a somewhat hopeful note of defiant activism, Irena Salina's globe-hopping documentary is a terrifying downer.

Although meandering at times, Flow is still a serviceable documentary spouting daunting informational facts and figures about the freshwater supply threats and the perilous consequences that inevitably follow.

The film is filled mostly with talking-head interviews and very one-sided reporting. So it's lucky that these are subjects that are extremely topical right now, and are of interest as a result.

November 7, 2008
Problems are addressed in a narrative progression that gets more horrendous and builds into utter despair, except for the final few words of activism and optimism.

The overarching theme here is that the Earth's freshwater supply is being contaminated, sucked dry and 'privatized' for the benefit of huge corporations that are establishing themselves as the heirs to the oil cartels.

It is required watching, because only concerted citizen action can stop the trend.

All of Salina's interviews and data tell a graphic story about corporate water piracy, the complicity of governments, the burden put on the poor and the scam of bottled water. But she can't quite jam it all in and still have a film that, well, flows.

As if we didn't have enough to worry about.

October 17, 2008
Yeah, we really don't have enough to worry about these days. So why not grab a Pellegrino and see "Flow," Irena Salina's documentary about the end of the world's water supply as we know it?

Salina's film might have been stronger had it not tried to cover so many water-related issues. But there's no denying its power.
