Harry Shearer Gets Serious
11 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Caught an early screening of "The Big Uneasy" tonight. It opens nationwide August 30th. Harry Shearer goes deep into the causes of the Katrina flooding with engrossing interviews with the major whistleblowers, who collectively pointed out that the floods were the result of shoddy work by the U.S. Corps of Engineers, dating back to long before Katrina. This is a film with clear cut good guys and bad guys, and hits all the bases of how the floods happened, how the aftermath was dealt with (or not), the backstory on what caused the failures of the levees, the govt spin, and the professional costs to those who bravely investigated the causes and made public what they learned. Good New Orleans atmosphere. And a memorable moment with Sen. Vitter, of all people. Is very well done. Good for Harry. He took his passion for New Orleans, his journalistic skills and political smarts and made them into something.
