Movie Info

On April 22, 2010 the Deepwater Horizon offshore drilling rig run by BP sunk into the Gulf of Mexico creating the worst oil spill in history. Until the oil well was killed on September 19, 779,037,744 liters of crude oil and over 7,000,000 liters of chemical dispersant spread into the sea. By exposing the root causes of the spill filmmakers Josh and Rebecca Tickell uncover a vast network of corruption. The Big Fix is a damning indictment of a system of government led by a powerful and secretive oligarchy that puts the pursuit of profit over all other human and environmental needs. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for The Big Fix

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (5)

If the film's conspiratorial viewpoint makes sense and is probably accurate, its final judgment is so gloomy that your impulse is to throw up your hands and despair.

Top Critic

Though the Tickells' unabashedly partial, first-person approach is a liability, they present so much damning evidence that their case is - one hopes - impossible to ignore.

More a summarizing project than an act of investigative journalism or a revelatory indictment.

Top Critic

A convincing case is made that the government and the corporations it serves are worse than the mafia. A deeply radical film that makes you understand why young people risked pepper-spraying to build the Occupy Wall Street movement.
