A well-made, timely film about a continuing problem.
9 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dan Rather asked filmmaker Josh Tickell why documentaries are so popular in an interview at the Sundance Film Festival. The answer is that the media is letting us down. While Fox, MSNBC, and everyone in between have forgotten about the BP spill, the oil continues to leak, and Corexit continues to be sprayed, pumped and dumped into the waters of the Gulf. Americans are demanding that offshore oil permits be renewed to create jobs, while thousands of fishing jobs are being snuffed out by the worst spill in history, followed by the worst solution in history.

Josh and Rebecca Tickell interview the locals who are most directly affected by the spill, and sneak behind the scenes to catch the criminals in the act. This film should put its creators on stage at the 2012 Oscars.
