Josh Fox puts a fresh spin on a well-drilled - if continually relevant - story.

Cheney, the great outdoorsman, nearly killed a friend while hunting. That was nothing, however, compared with what he's been doing to thousands of his fellow countrymen.

An absorbing, level-headed documentary exposing the way in which nothing is allowed to stand in the path of corporate greed.
January 18, 2011

By turns shocking and deeply upsetting, Gasland is a powerful, well made eco-documentary that carries a vitally important message.

December 28, 2010
The lesson is a familiar one but Fox conveys it vividly, contrasting natural beauty with the despoliation wrought by industrial plunder.
December 6, 2010
Virtually guarenteed to make your blood boil, debut documentariab Fox's remarkably likeable investigation pours forth a persuasive call-to-arms.
