Storyline

"GasHole" is a new documentary film about the history of Oil prices and the future of alternative fuels. The film takes a wide, yet detailed examination of our dependence on foreign supplies of Oil. What are the causes that led from America turning from a leading exporter of oil to the world's largest importer? What are the economic and sociological forces that have contributed to that change and impede its solution? The film examines many different potential solutions to our oil dependence. Starting with claims of buried technology that dramatically improves gas mileage, to navigating bureaucratic governmental roadblocks, to evaluating different alternative fuels that are technologically available now, to questioning the American Consumer's reluctance to embrace alternatives. If you buy gasoline, you should see this movie! Written by Anonymous

Good Intentions, but Poorly Done
31 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am both fascinated and infuriated by the subject matter and I appreciate any effort to draw attention to the issue and expose the greedy Big Oil executives, but I thought this was just poorly done. Very amateurish. It felt like they spliced together a bunch of the same clips and used lame old cartoons to make jokes and get their points across. It almost reminded me, quality-wise, of a video I made in college using Windows Movie Maker in which I pretty much just mashed up a bunch of different YouTube videos. It did not feel very tightly focused, and it was very repetitive. Still need to check out Gasland, which I'm sure is better.
