An even look at an important issue.
10 June 2006 | by jonhoweSee all my reviews

No Vacancy is a documentary about one of the world's most pressing, yet often ignored, issues; over population. It starts off saying that in our lifetime the the population of the earth is expected to soar well above 13 billion, a number most believe would be impossible to sustain. The movie brings the viewer around the world, examining how different cultures view reproduction, and the effects of that on family size. From India, to the US, to Iran, to Mexico, the movie is quite in depth, and in many cases surprising (especially in Iran). The film does something that is quite refreshing, considering many modern documentaries, and that is that it ends on an almost positive note. WHile much of the film is sad, frightening, and negative, in the end it points out that, while it sucks now, people have finally NOTICED it sucks, and begun to fix it. If that trend continues, which this film might help, the world might be okay!
