When the film suggests that wind farms atop the mountains are the answer while backing higher taxes on such energy, which is more expensive than coal in the first place, it demonstrates its lack of interest in market reality.
[The film] confirms every awful suspicion ever raised about the coal industry. Trouble is, the news is so bad and so plentiful that The Last Mountain may have you looking for the nearest exit instead of a way to register your outrage.
Opting for energy sources at home as opposed to invasions abroad related to oil, these alternatives result in a different human carnage. Not exactly front page headlines, and deadly practices like gas fracking below and mountain top coal mining above.
That much of "The Last Mountain" actually is beautiful, with polished cinematography and deft editing, makes the medicine go down easier, but there's no doubt to some, it will still feel like medicine.
