News & Interviews for GasLand
Critic Reviews for GasLand
While the hushed tones of Fox's would-be naïf commentary slightly grate after a while, his film's images, contrasting natural beauty with industrial horror show, are bracingly effective indeed.
An exhaustive and eye-opening look at natural-gas drilling and its potential dangers.
With its jolting images of flammable tap water and chemically burned pets, New York theater-director-turned-documentarian Josh Fox's Sundance-feted shocker makes an irrefutable case against U.S. corporate "fracking."
It's not pretty, but it works for some. Gasland won a special jury prize at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.

Audience Reviews for GasLand
We are all seriously fucked. That is all I have to say about this film that will should have bested all others at the 2011 Oscars for Best Documentary. Horrifyingly amazing.
Scary and shocking, Gasland opened my eyes to the practise of Hydrolic Fracturing or "Fracking" and it's effects on the groundwater and on the people who are affected. The statistics and the footage of interviews and conferences, are just so upsetting to see. How can people be treated this way?? Gasland is a documentary you do not want to miss.
if the ideas presented in fox's film are true, this is more of a horror film than a documentary. The only people strongly challenging the film's assertions are the gas companies themselves, and from what ive read even they are not thoroughly dealing with all of the issues raised in the film, such as why people's water supplies became contaminated in conjunction with the arrival of drilling, and why they are supplying new water to families who have threatened law suits. this film scared the crap out of me. this is an issue i will continue to pay close attention to.
