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.

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.

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.

Salina's film is a very effective primer of an underreported problem. If nothing else, it made me thirsty.

Irena Salina's astonishingly wide-ranging film is less depressing than galvanizing, an informed and heartfelt examination of the tug of war between public health and private interests.

Touching on everything from the cost citizens of poor countries pay for water to corporate hoodwinking in the bottled-water business, Flow makes you thirsty for more information

September 11, 2008
Grim but ultimately hopeful, Flow makes a convincing, impassioned case that concerned citizens need to fight for the right to clean water just as assiduously as Yauch and his Beastie compatriots once demanded the right to party.

One of those charming little documentaries that make you question whether the human race is really worth preserving.

It's a plainly one-sided call to arms, but with good reason -- you may never look at your faucet without flinching again.

Along with this sobering information, filmmaker Irena Salina's docu includes a distinct note of optimism that should help the film flow smoothly through the festival pipeline before eventually settling on DVD.
