The poignant, frightening and visually striking documentary "Windfall" places debate within a very human perspective.
A full-throated attack on wind energy, this feature by Laura Israel is one of the most surprising (and depressing) eco docs I've seen in years.
[An] urgent, informative and artfully assembled documentary.
Ms. Israel's movie proves, once again, that the best nonfiction cinema possesses the same attributes as good fiction: Strong characters, conflict, story arc, visual style.
A veteran film editor making her first feature, Israel emphasizes the area's low-key beauty.
It's a microcosmic version of the political divisions - between left and right, environmentalists and free-marketers, corporations and citizens - that have virtually paralyzed our republic.
Laura Isreal's probing examination of America's emergent windmill industry comes through a microsomal case study in the small upstate New York town of Meredith.
Filmmaker Laura Israel's investigation of how construction of wind turbines in rural New York State impacts local citizens is an important reminder that there are no easy and quick fixes for environmental issues.
A stunning debut, with a fascinating subject, an array of plain-folk talking heads, and precious access to a besieged community.
a handsome film about ugly things happening in a gorgeous place
Whatever the legitimate arguments Windfall makes against the industry it targets, Meredith's feuding becomes just as inaccessible as the windmills that incite it.
A much needed second look at the promise of wind energy, so often put forward with scant attention to the impact of 400 foot monstrosities on the people suffering such "progress" in their midst.
