The best documentary of 2009 for anyone with half a brain.
19 May 2014 | by (United States, The WEST) – See all my reviews

I feel sorry for the other reviewer who seemed to take some personal offense at this out-of-the-box thinking piece of art work.

This isn't even a documentary, it is something else.

Where do you live? Where will you live? Where will WE live? Someday all of this will be something else, and we allowed it to happen. The fault is ours and no other. When will we stop?

I don't have answers, only admiration.

Oh and the music choices are almost all top-notch. This comes from the heart, not the mouth.

One day more films like this will be accepted and we will all rejoice.
