Wish I could say it's "alarmist", 30 May 2012
Author: skuhmm from Spain

This is by no means a perfect film, but a couple of the other users' reviews surprise me with their cynicism and actually make me suspect there might be moles from plastic corporations writing "reviews" here. Yes, Werner B. is clearly trying to emulate Michael Moore's style, and there's a moment or two where his playful, spontaneous interviewing style gets in the way of the interviewed person fully expressing their (usually very interesting) opinions. The guy of the bioplastic corporation in particular springs to mind. However, to say that this film carries no information and that its message is "alarmist" is absurd. The film clearly shows EVIDENCE of the effects of plastic in our health, with factual data provided by experts and plenty of real examples. Anyone thinking this is "alarmist" must live in a parallel world where it doesn't matter if the entire food chain is contaminated and transformed, the prevalence of cancer and endocrine disorders increase and the companies which create plastic are allowed to work secretly without revealing to the consumers what they really are doing. Poor plastic firms! Let's just keep on blindly consuming their products and not think too much, OK? After all, as we all know, they only have our best interest at heart and don't care about such things as money, huh?
