Critic Reviews for FrackNation
A one-sided attack piece like "FrackNation" doesn't add much to the conversation.
More than anything, "FrackNation" underscores the sheer complexity of a process that offers a financial lifeline to struggling farmers.
Audience Reviews for FrackNation
Not judging either film by its messages (because this one make a lot of attacks at "Gasland") "FracNation" is intriguing, but it doesn't have quite the entertainment value that "Gasland" had, although the main journalist in this film was fun to watch.
"FrackNation" is a documentary that seeks to clarify misinformation regarding fracking, particularly by attacking the documentary "Gasland." When the latter was released, it threw the world into controversy as many countries outlawed the fracking process and many American operations were shut down; however, the directors of this documentary question "Gasland's" displays of lighting tap water on fire and statics regarding environmental danger. It manages to supply people that are affected by fracking who support the process and experts who argue that the process is safe. The directors say that both sides are represented, but this film is so one-sided that it is hard to decide what to believe in the end. As a Pennsylvanian, fracking is something that affects me personally but it is difficult to form an opinion based on "Gasland" and "FrackNation," both of which make a persuasive but one-sided argument.
Fracking. There, I said it. If you're interested or concerned, you should see this short (77 minute) documentary. Really. You should.
