You’ll need a strong constitution…
This documentary shows how corporate greed, without any concern for anything other than making a profit, is destroying one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world: the United States.
As another reviewer said, it’s not about gas as in gasoline, but about how oil and gas companies are polluting the environment through a process called hydraulic fracturing, used in the extraction of natural gas.
The film is filled with unmistakable and undeniable evidence that this process is in fact forever altering not only the landscape in several states, but also their wild life as well as the health of regular individuals permanently. The images and testimonies shown will blow you away and you’ll come out with a very different awareness level on what it means to be “enviromentally conscious”.
I found it really gut-wrenching and I guarantee you you won’t be able to get through to the end of it without wanting to go and do something about it.
We’ve seen in a number of different films how powerful industries will do anything to protect their interests and keep people quiet about their lies and methods for keeping the general public deceived about what they really do. What’s really striking here is that is happening for real, in congress, and not in a movie.
The other aspect I found really positive is that the filmmaker tried hard to remain as objective as possible, which is more than I can say about any Michael Moore documentary.Everyone is given a chance to tell their part of the story and the audience is left to decide what to make of everything being said and shown.
I highly recommend it. You’ll need a strong constitution to get through it; it’s not for the faint of heart. But it’ll be a very rewarding experience and hopefully one that will make you cringe every time you see a gas drill across your front yard.
Frick n’ Frack
I’ve watched many documentaries and I’ve appreciated almost all of them. They are usually wake up calls to the public. They inform people, like myself, of harms or dangers we were not aware of. A good documentarian will be that thorn in the side of governments, corporations, or otherwise as they dig and dig to uncover the hidden truth.
Josh Fox wanted to do that here. He wanted to uncover the truth about hydraulic fracturing aka fracking for natural gas. Fracking is a process of drilling and using a high pressure chemical water mixture to release natural gas from where it’s deposited in the Earth’s crust. The energy companies claim that fracking has no negative impact upon water sources, about a few dozen people that Josh spoke to will say differently. He showed brown water, yellow water, and water that was flammable–yes! Flammable. All of the water came from the wells or drinking sources for regular folks.
The material of “Gasland” was excellent. The narration of the documentary was not. Josh’s low, barely audible, monotone voice didn’t exactly make one’s ears perk up in attention. Perhaps he should’ve borrowed from the Michael Moore style of lively comedic sarcasm to keep the audience awake. It’s clear that Josh was a novice at this documentary thing, so I’ll give him a pass.
