The forest through the trees...
23 February 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

More than just a film, this doco within a film does a great job of addressing weighty issues that currently face the logging industry. Illuminating and objective, it even succeeds at being entertaining with a poignant array of true to life characters. It's surprising to see the talent that jumped on board, especially with Playboy model Tricia Helfer who plays the actress looking for a cause. Skillfully gift-wrapped with high production value, writer/director Mark Leiren-Young has succeeded in finding great entertainment value here, and the dialogue is both authentic and emotionally convincing.

While the doco within a film vehicle is nothing new, it's done here in a unique way that has seemingly succeeded in fooling more than a few. If you want a thought provoking film that focuses on environmental issues, you'll find it here.
