Movie Info

PUMP is an inspiring, eye-opening documentary that tells the story of America's addiction to oil, from its corporate conspiracy beginnings to its current monopoly today, and explains clearly and simply how we can end it - and finally win choice at the pump. Today oil is our only option of transportation fuel at the pump. Our exclusive use of it has drained our wallets, increased air pollution and sent our sons and daughters to war in faraway lands. PUMP shows us how through the use of a variety of replacement fuels, we will be able to fill up our cars - cheaper, cleaner and American made - and in the process, create more jobs for a stronger, healthier economy. The film features notable experts such as John Hofmeister, former President of Shell Oil US; Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motors; Peter Goldmark, former president of the Rockefeller Foundation; and other noteworthy figures who share their passionate views and knowledge. Right now we have the ability to change our country's future, but we never knew it. Aren't we tired of being taken for a ride? PUMP is the movie that could change that. (c) Submarine

"Pump" is fascinating at times, although the quick cutting and constant music take away from some engrossing moments.

Compelling and cogent ...

Pump may be a little too preoccupied with oil industry conspiracy theories (Prohibition was really an effort to keep the auto industry from making alcohol-powered cars?), but its big-picture message isn't a tough one to swallow.
