Pretty pictures, few facts
1 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

I'm surprised that the film won a short-documentary Oscar - it's so light on facts that it could have been a photo-essay - or maybe that's what it was. Lots of really lovely views of the mountain and the ashfalls and the devastation, but no real explanation of why it happened, how far it affected things, what the end results were. I like my documentaries to have facts, which is why I voted this one low.
