DESCRIPTION: A theatrical documentary on the planet's dwindling oil resources. The subject at hand is crude oil - specifically, the depletion of petroleum from the Earth, in an era when consumption threatens to exceed supply. The overtone of the film is speculative but admonitory; Gelpke and McCormack suggest that if western society fails to reinvent itself altogether (via such innovations as hydrogen-powered autos, and a decreased reliance on fiscally unsound Middle Eastern nations), economic cataclysm is not simply likely but inevitable. To underscore this point, the filmmakers contrast obscenely naïve shorts from the 1950s that promise depthless oil supplies, with contemporary warnings from geologists who suggest that the bottom of the well is close at hand. McCormack and Gelpke also interview such subjects as former OPEC secretary general Fadhil Chalabi and Bush advisor Roger E. Ebel. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

Relevo de responsabilidad:

Disclaimer: We hope that you will learn from each film, but we also encourage you to seek out a balanced source of information. For instance, many of the films are NOT balanced; some in fact may be inflammatory. So use your discretion and note when exaggerated strong negative adjectives or phrases are used in the films to promote fear, such usages as “disaster”,  “slaughterers”, “baby killers”, “dumb”, ”stupid”, ”tragedy”, ”catastrophe”, or “we are making a terrible mistake in our policies”. While you may agree with some of the negative language, most documented films with reliable sources use MODERATED adjectives. Also, most trustworthy films suggest information and solutions on how the human species can deal with our current and future problems, such as running out of resources and destroying valuable habitat.

Our policy is to use the Internet Movie Database (www.imdb.com) whenever possible. IMDB uses ratings generated from citizens around the world. If you wish, you can register at IMDB and cast your vote. To help with your scheduling, we also will try to post the runtime for each film, and to provide you with some additional information (year, tagline/plot
