Critic Reviews for Living in the Future's Past

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

  • Unfortunately, it's pretty easy to react dismissively to this earnest film, which speaks to so many very smart, very thoughtful people it can hardly find room to let any of them talk for long.

  • The film presents arrogance as being as dangerous as greed, and it's with the soft smile of Hollywood irony that a grizzled actor reminds the audience that only you can prevent environmental disaster.

  • In the end, Living in the Future's Past is quite conventional and presumably something we've already seen before, but it never hurts, especially as we are reaching the point of no return.

  • "Living in the Future's Past" coalesces around an earnest and resonant message, especially as Bridges' gravelly voice urges us to do more than just "scratch the guilt itch" and make sustainable changes that feel authentic to our lives.

    Oct 9, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The film is absolutely gorgeous, featuring an amazing collection of high resolution footage working in tandem with Bridges' rich narration. Not preachy, this didactic narrative does serve as a low key prayer for universal support for conservation.

    Oct 8, 2018 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…
  • Living in the Future's Past does not challenge viewers with an overwhelming task of changing the world, but in changing ourselves. It asks us to look within and examine whether we confuse what we need with what we desire and vice versa.
