An explosive and timely film.

GasLand works by effectively reminding you of that in slightly different ways again and again. It's not subtle, but it's effective.

There is something seriously wrong going on here -- just remember the tap and the fire -- that needs to be fixed sooner rather than later.

It's shocking, it's hilarious but most importantly, it's eye-opening.
November 17, 2010
This very good documentary by noted American troublemaker Josh Fox details the contamination of drinking water caused by the drilling for natural gas and explores the callous corporate mentality behind it.
November 15, 2010
GasLand is shot in an amateurish fashion, reminding us that anyone could have made it -- and in fact, any of us should have made it. It's an inspiring, heartbreaking call-to-arms.
November 15, 2010
The film is a powerful alarm -- and an evocative one.
November 15, 2010
Shocking, provocative and poignant, GasLand is in short, compulsive viewing.
November 15, 2010
While it's let down by its disorienting camera work, this is informative, entertaining and impassioned.

It's raw and rough and flawed, but it's an important and deeply disturbing film and one that ironically highlights the importance of personal freedoms in democracies - however flawed they all are

Wielding a banjo and a lyrical sensibility, Fox transforms his documentary into more than a provocative call to arms; this is documentary as poetry.

An exhaustive and eye-opening look at natural-gas drilling and its potential dangers.

A horror story that turns out to be unfortunately real.

A horror story that turns out to be unfortunately real.

There's an acerbically straightforward, old-fashioned muckrake gurgling with righteous pugnacity beneath the mannered surface of Josh Fox's Gasland.
September 23, 2010
Though becomes less interesting when it turns doctrinaire, personal angle and substantive investigation make it involving and entertaining enough to absorb its warning.
September 15, 2010
Essential viewing, especially New Yorkers whose drinking water is being threatened by the same kinds of corporate greed and government collusion that allowed the BP spill.
September 14, 2010
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."
September 5, 2010
Aside from exposing natural gas companies' corruption, Gasland makes another important point: individual experiences are made collective -- visible, galvanizing, political -- on TV.
July 23, 2010
It's not pretty, but it works for some. Gasland won a special jury prize at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.
