On April 20, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico. It killed 11 workers and caused the worst oil spill in American history. The explosion still haunts the lives of those most intimately affected, though the story has long ago faded from the front page. At once a fascinating corporate thriller, a heartbreaking human drama and a peek inside the walls of the secretive oil industry, "The Great Invisible" is the first documentary feature to go beyond the media coverage to examine the crisis in depth through the eyes of oil executives, survivors and Gulf Coast residents who experienced it first-hand and then were left to pick up the pieces while the world moved on.Written by
When will we ever learn? When will we ever revolt?
Some other reviewer stated that you should watch the movie Deepwater Horizon instead. Well I watched both of them and my opinion is that the movie is a good movie about the Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion, on what really happened on that platform. But it's a movie, based on true events, but still it's a movie. On the other side this documentary is about the impact the explosion had on everything and everybody, it's about how justice never will be served, maybe a big fine but that's about it. A big fine is like peanuts for companies like BP. I'm sure nobody will ever see the inside of a jail and that while people died, while thousands if not millions people suffered from the consequences of their neglect, while millions of animals and plants perished and will continue to die even decades after the catastrophe. The documentary is very well made and very informative. But I doubt it will ever change anything in the behavior of humans. Humans, the parasites of this planet, slowly destroying everything just out of greed and comfort.
