"How to Let Go" says all the right things about an unnerving peril, and the various ways some highly motivated people are trying to combat it.
After speaking to several environmental experts, hiking for hours through the Amazon, and discovering just how momentous the threat of climate change is to humanity as we know it, documentarian Josh Fox made a film about himself.
It's a fascinating, heartbreaking and ultimately inspiring ride.
What is How To Let Go? A dire prophecy? A call to arms? A personal travelogue? It appears to be a combination of all three -- and frequently a disjointed one.
Tough. As in, tough to watch. Tough to consider. Tough to ignore.
With one statistic after another, the movie paints a picture of the inevitable flooding of coastal cities and an ensuing struggle for homes and food.
"How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can't Change" provides visual and statistical information that should inspire people to make a change.
The culmination of disaster footage and shocking talk from scientists make this compulsive viewing.
A film with moments as exuberant as in How To Let Go is so much finer than all the ones that make you want to reach for the nearest serrated knife and nearest soft wrist.
Fox's film is a grab-bag, [...but he] hits that sweet spot between realism and idealism which few of his cinematic eco-activists have so far achieved.
An energetic and positive story about actions real people can take to engage in this important issue.
There's no doubt that the people that Fox singles out are worthy of his camera's attention, but it doesn't equate to a coherent feature film as much as an enormously wasted opportunity.
