Filmmaker Davis Guggenheim follows Al Gore on the lecture circuit, as the former presidential candidate campaigns to raise public awareness of the dangers of global warming and calls for immediate action to curb its destructive effects on the environment.
A look at tightrope walker Philippe Petit's daring, but illegal, high-wire routine performed between New York City's World Trade Center's twin towers in 1974, what some consider, "the artistic crime of the century".
Jean François Heckel,
I thought this was made more recently than 2009. Makes me want to google Colin and see what has happened since.
The movie itself is quite honest and relatable. Colin is the butt of many jokes including some of his friends. The relation between Colin and Michelle seems strained at times, she wants to be part of the team but he is pretty extreme while remaining quite nice.
Some of the stuff they do makes a lot of sense but no electricity except for one solar power unit, a bit extreme. I like the idea of zero garbage but man you have to work hard for it these days, almost everything is in a package or wrapping. The worm box bit was really funny. The candles actually seemed really nice but not very practical, romantic, not great for reading. The small plot for veggies was great and interesting that even that guy was critical of Colin.
I enjoyed this a lot and strongly recommend. Especially for anyone who wants to reduce their impact on the planet.
