Unlike "The Big Fix", which I enjoyed very much for the expose that it is, "Freedom" comes off as nothing more than a paid advertisement for the ethanol lobby.

Freedom does a nice job of extolling the virtues of ethanol as a clean fuel, but ignores entirely competing alternative fuels. Where is the discussion of hybrids? EVs? Fuel cells? Anything? What about the potential problems of ethanol; reduced power, damage to incompatible engines, rising food prices, the controversial nature of corn subsidies? If JT truly believes that ethanol is the way of the future then I respect that, but let's have a discussion about it, instead of the total whitewash that this film is.

I gave it a generous rating of 3 because it's not entirely devoid of facts, however I can't ignore the dangerous one-sidedness of this corporate claptrap. Caveat emptor.
