An excellent counterbalance to Inconvenient Truth
22 March 2008 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

This film examines the way in which the petrochemical industry has manipulated events around the world to its advantage. Much of the film deals with the role of Shell in Nigeria, specifically about the Ogoni people and Ken Saru Wiwa - they don't come out too well. Anyone who cares about what humanity is doing to the world should see it. I characterize it as a counter to Al Gore's film, because it is made completely dispassionately (the commentary is completely unemotional). It just tries to get the viewer thinking about the awful things that are done in our name. As a non-American who has watched Inconvenient Truth a number of times for professional reasons, I am skeptical about the motives for making it. Crude Impact is completely different in this regard.
