Critic Reviews for Oil Factor: Behind the War on Terror
Husband-and-wife filmmakers Gerard Ungerman and Audrey Brohy pack their film with information that will not please anyone frustrated by the ubiquity of space-hogging, gas guzzling SUVs.
In their quest to connect as many dots as possible (Halliburton, depleted uranium, civilian war deaths), Ungerman and Brohy spread themselves a little thin across the map of U.S. intrigue.
Most of this is old news. And the filmmakers never make a coherent case, at least not to the layperson. As a result, the film, which runs about 90 minutes, seems painfully long.
offers nothing that any mildly news-savvy viewer doesn't already know
A good refresher course for those whose antidepressant prescriptions aren't about to expire.
Audience Reviews for Oil Factor: Behind the War on Terror
The most interesting part of this film is the on the streets footage of Baghdad and surrounding areas. I guarantee you've NEVER seen this on network TV. Lots of interesting interviews and speculations about overall USA/ Oil Companies long range goals for explotation of oil of not only Iraq but also the region and the ongoing strategic games between USA- China and Russia. The film makers did bungle a page out of The Peak Oil Theory play book as they speculate by 2010 North American oil production and resources would be depleted.
