Documentary: "Escape from Suburbia" (2007)

Criticism: A follow-up to the 2004 documentary, "The End of Suburbia". Very positive in its overall tone. Offers examples of solutions of how to move from unsustainability to sustainability. Progressive. Urban farms. Indigenous sources of knowledge. Human life-based. Locally sustainable communities.

Criticism: An easy to understand, 10-step indictment. Frightening. Accurate. Historical comparative analysis.

Documentaries = education, not entertainment. Fundamental difference.

Documentary: "The End of Suburbia" (2004)

Criticism: It's the end of the (suburban) world as we know it, and we all feel numb...

Documentary: "Who Killed the Electric Car?" (2006)

Criticism: Rather, "What killed the electric car?" Answer: Greed.

GM, which has recently been bailed out with public funds, actually destroyed existing production models of a promising alternative.

Documentary: "The War on Democracy" (2007)

Criticism: Yet another "must-see" documentary that you will never see on corporate media outlets in the US.

Now I understand why he said this.

More proof of the disregard for human life and human rights represented by this position, despite these efforts of "reform".

Documentary: "The Take" (2004)

Criticism: A "must-see" that you will never see broadcast on any corporate television outlet in the US.
