Critic Reviews for Johnstown Flood
Mark Bussler's Johnstown Flood is an excellent documentary about one of the worst tragedies to occur in America during the 1800s.
Bussler understands the purpose of telling this story in documentary form, but it's the facts themselves that should be driving the storytelling, not the other way around.
Johnstown Flood has its weaknesses (the firsthand accounts weren't written to be recited like dialogue), but it still does a fine job of explaining why the impact of May 31, 1889 remains with us.
Story is king - if the budgetary limits are a little too obvious, we must smile and forgive, because the writing & research is excellent.
Feels less like a dry History lesson than like a '50s disaster flick.
