Shocking
15 November 2013 | by (Jakarta) – See all my reviews

Yesterday, i watched this movie in the International Documentary Film Festival at Erasms Huis Jakarta. First thing i want to say is 'Shocking'. Candida Brady provided undebatable facts how the waste effect entire world and human being. Eventough this movie is documentary, which contain lots of academic analysis about waste and its effect, but the present of Jeremy Iron give the taste of humor too in some parts. It gave the refreshment after all analysis which make your forehead crinkled . I think the message of the film easily embraced by the deliberation of the real facts. I wonder, how long this film making took time as it covers almost all parts of world, from east to west, from south to north. Just Bravo!
