Astonishing documentary - a rare must-see., 13 September 2009
Author: Lara Call from United States

I saw this screened at RIFF yesterday and was bowled over by the quality of this documentary. I will freely admit that I had less than little interest in the topic of bottled water when I sat down in the theatre; by the time this documentary had concluded I honestly felt I had learned a life-changing lesson. Yes, it really is that good.

The cinematography is gorgeous. The sleek, concise presentation of fact upon fact kept me riveted - and as the point of a documentary is to inform, 'Tapped' achieved its purpose admirably.

I would recommend this documentary to anyone who has more than a passing interest in their personal health and that of their loved ones; any feeling of social responsibility for the welfare of their fellow Americans; and anybody who has ever been outraged by the casual exploitation of natural resources by morally bankrupt corporate giants.

I'm actually a die-hard capitalist (I've never hugged tree; doubt I ever will) but this documentary made me really angry.

I also recommend 'Tapped' as a learning resource for any aspiring documentarians out there - this is how it should be done: a compelling, well-balanced argument, extraordinary supporting evidence, imaginative presentation and truly beautiful camera-work.

I've never given a documentary 10/10 in my life, but this was the highlight of the Film Festival. Excellent!
