  • By acknowledging what isn't known about drinking water, but what should be illuminated about the mechanism behind it, "What Lies Upstream" proves an exemplary piece of advocacy filmmaking.

  • Is "What Lies Upstream" persuasive in all respects? No. Will it make you think twice about what's gone unnoticed in your tap water? Absolutely.

  • This quietly chilling wake-up call is sure to be one of the most vital documentaries to hit theaters in 2018.

    December 21, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Hoback does an impressive job of methodically building his case. And he's every bit as adroit when it comes to fashioning, over the course of his film, an insightful account of two intriguing players in this ongoing real-life drama.

  • Perhaps this new denouement is more provocative than the original; the overall content is certainly compelling enough to motivate audiences, or voters, to take action.

    March 21, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It seems to me that this timely new film establishes that the current attention given to Pruitt's living situation in Washington, D.C., and pay raises for officials in the EPA, are miniscule compared to the environmental disaster ahead.
