Audience Reviews for The Vanishing of the Bees

  • Jul 24, 2012
    This documentary explores the environmental implications of a mysterious disappearance of bees. More optimistic than most environmentalist documentaries, which of have a tendency to doom-say one to death, this film contains some decent information that promotes organic farming and a reduction in our use of pesticides, calling in one of the usual suspects in this conversation, Michael Pollan. I also found it interesting how connected bees are with the eco-system. However, the narration is probably written by a four-year-old, and Ellen Page reads it like she's trying to entertain a grade school class. Overall, in an age when we find information on film more digestible than information written, <i>The Vanishing of the Bees</i> is worth watching, but it's not much of a film.

    I didn't think it was a great documentary, but the subject was interesting.
