[Pegi Vail's] documentary about the effects of global tourism... should be mandatory viewing for anyone who's ever thumbed through a Lonely Planet guidebook with an eye toward visiting an exotic destination.
This well-meaning but superficial film skips across the globe, raising some provocative arguments but advancing few.
Vail's film earnestly interrogates authenticity even as her camera lingers on a beach without footprints, inviting the viewer to walk.
While the film includes numerous images showing plastic detritus and tire tracks, it also offers several testimonies by travelers relating specific experiences.
It isn't perfect and could have been much tougher-minded - especially about the country's "selling" of tourism - but this film should start a necessary and overdue conversation.
Pegi Vail beautifully edited film somehow addresses a lot, but ultimately says little.
