Compelling and sad indictment of worker safety in the US oil industry
16 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

HARROWING coverage of deadly accidents in the oil industry, and from not distant history. The film was made in 1991, and they covered a lot of accidents just from the late 1980s, including the Philips explosion in Texas that killed 23 and injured 314!, and then 17 killed in an ARCO plant explosion not very far from the first one. THe interviews with the loved ones of the deceased are really disturbing, as is the silence from the corporate greed-driven CEOs who all declined to be interviewed.

This documentary has been BURIED, but its great. Narrated by Joe Mantegna.

Directed and produced by Bill Guttentag
