  • By methodically exposing the physical impossibility of perpetual growth, the film reveals how absurdly self-defeating human and ecological exploitation through mechanization has become.

  • The longer this unfocused screed goes on, the thinner your patience wears.

    February 14, 2012 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • [Displays] a good visual instinct for the sublimity, as well as the ugliness, of the industrial and postindustrial environments, and a patient and generous interest in what people have to say about their own lives.

    February 14, 2012 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • The filmmakers more or less show us in The Forgotten Space how the sea is capitalism's global trading floor writ large.

    February 12, 2012 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • At times as much a travelogue as it is an investigative portrait, [it] finds unexpected tributaries where mass transit has altered the life of the common worker, usually with negative results.

    January 20, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The strong point of this film is its spectacular imagery. The weak point (which for me tips the balance)... is its nave, posturing Marxist commentary and insistence on its own profundity.
