Critic Reviews for Monumental

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (6)

Kelly Duane's documentary attempts to shed some light on a worthy subject, but does so only fractionally, resulting in a less-than-comprehensive portrait.

You'll be wondering why you're sitting passively in a darkened theater, rather than scaling a cliff or rafting down a river.

By the time the closing credits roll, you'll be ready to run out and hug a tree.

In an age where constructing papier-maché caricatures of world leaders is considered activism, it's revealing to see a documentary where an idealist actually engages government and effects positive change.

Hauntingly beautiful.

Makes a good argument that Brower's story and the history of the 20th century environmental activism are synonymous.
