Perhaps if I had experienced this movie when I was twelve years old, I'd have come away with something more than a lot of yawns and the desire to plant a tree.

The production lacks much dramatic credibility and often teeters on the edge of the ludicrous.

Songs from Joan Baez borders on chalkboard-grating, to the point where I had to simply shut the DVD off during the closing credits.

The movie has a great premise, but the execution doesn't live up to the potential.

As a time-capsule, it's mildly diverting; as farce, it's terrific; as a parable, it's utterly useless.

A pretty s-f outing, good special effects, but slow at times.

September 1, 2002
Morally challenging science fiction drama with a protagonist who is a genuine ecological hero.
November 15, 2006
Embora obviamente datado e piegas em alguns momentos (as seqüências musicais são constrangedoras), desperta algumas boas indagações filosóficas que se tornam bem mais interessantes que as discussões ecológicas que o filme pretende provocar.
| Original Score: 4/5

Suffers from age, but Trumbull's vision still glows, as does terrific Bruce Dern in practically solo turn.
