We had a screening of the documentary –An Inconvenient Truth last week at work. I had heard a lot about the movie but hadn’t had the opportunity to watch it. (Yes, I know I am behind humanity. The rest of the world has made the movie a part of their ‘been there done that’ list and I am watching it only now. What can I say? Better late than never.) Turned out the movie is as fabulous as the people are claiming it to be.
I came out impressed by just about every aspect of the movie. I liked the style of narration, where Al Gore weaves in snippets of his life into the larger narrative. The direction is good, as it the photography. I also appreciated the relatively simple manner in which the rather complex and multifaceted issues of global warming was deal with in the movie. The volume of research conducted for the movie is mind-boggling.( And here I was feeling happy doing piddly little reseach studies for the organisation! Sheesh…terrible) Of course when you are a serious watcher and absorb most of what is being presented to you through the movie, the magnitude of the problem at hand hits you hard, and gets you a little worried. But I’d rather be informed and scared than ignorant.
Btw,post-movie, my fears about the Nano car have become very real!
A highly recommended movie. Go get yourself a DVD!
