This film is a remarkable surprise! A clever, concerned, screen-grab of
homeless lives that gives an ounce hope where one would least expect
it. Internationally acclaimed artist, Vik Muniz, is our guide on a
journey through garbage, guts, and glamor. With a smile on his face
that belies many of the bleak images he shares, he outlines what is,
perhaps, an early chapter in the "ecological medical journal" that must
be written to save our planet. The characters in Waste Land by far
overwhelm this 'preachy' review, and are 1,000 times warmer, to boot --
go see it before it's gone -- to NETFLIX -- As proceeds from your
ticket save lives!
