Movie Info

Energy is the foundation of modern life. Our transportation, global commerce, food and water, housing, medicine, communications and computing all depend on it. Yet energy is in a sweeping period of transition. Renewables are entering the landscape. Unconventional gas and oil are changing our ideas of supply. Opinions on nuclear are shifting. Carbon concerns may, or may not, affect global production and consumption. What does the future of energy really hold? Join energy visionary Dr. Scott Tinker on a spectacular global adventure to find out. Dr. Tinker explores the world's leading energy sites, from coal to solar, oil to biofuels, many highly restricted and never before seen on film. He gets straight answers from the people driving energy today, international leaders of government, industry and academia. In the end, he cuts through the confusion to discover a path to our future that is surprising and remarkably pragmatic. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for Switch

  • Perhaps "Switch's" greatest strength is in giving us enough information to try to come up with better questions of our own.

    November 8, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Exhaustive and exhausting, the new energy documentary "Switch" is so monotonous it makes "An Inconvenient Truth" look like "Armageddon."

    September 20, 2012 | Rating: 2/5
  • A methodical, occasionally remedial survey of the energy crisis and its possible solutions, Switch fits a subject often treated polemically into a more benign, continuing education mold.

    September 18, 2012 | Full Review…
  • "Switch," a thorough and sober-minded documentary about the past, present and future of energy, is refreshingly free of hot air.

    September 14, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Switch educates in the manner of a made-for-classroom film... the approach is a little too "balanced" to please anyone on any side of the issue.

    September 24, 2012 | Full Review…
  • Possibly the driest and most balanced documentary on the current energy crisis.
