Audience Reviews for The Vanishing of the Bees

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, The Vanishing of the Bees 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.
