Perhaps it's because I've seen H2Oil several times, but I think not. Unlike what people might say, this short film has no resemblance to Baraka whatsoever. There is no amazing soundtrack, there is almost no editing. Basically, rent a Cessna and fly over the tar sands for 45 minutes and you'll see exactly what is seen here.
I thought I was going to see a documentary, but this film is no more than a home movie. This film has no content, and a global catastrophe the size of the tar sands merits a much more in depth analysis. H2Oil was far from being a perfect film, but it was radically more informative and visually stunning than this. I would have expected better from Greenpeace.
