Fewer resources, more poverty. Is that anyone's idea of progress on this planet? This visually impressive Canadian documentary, rich in expert ideas, is a terrific resource for those who think and really care to know.
Zippily edited and nicely photographed, "Surviving Progress" is a fine summary of a hot ugly mess. But like too many short documentaries, it can't do justice to its complex topic or finally to those of us watching.
Like the myriad dangers threatening the earth, the film is simply too unwieldy, a sprawling mass of ideas that are dutifully checked off and then given only superficial explanations in lieu of insightful explorations.
