The Fog of War: Eleven Lessons from the Life of Robert S. McNamara reviewed documentary cover image

The Fog of War: Eleven Lessons from the Life of Robert S. McNamara

One of the best documentaries I have ever seen. McNamra gives us a genuine account of what happened during the cold war era, from a view point that was close to the top of United States administration.

TPB AFK: The Pirate Bay Away From Keyboard reviewed documentary cover image

TPB AFK: The Pirate Bay Away From Keyboard

Very well made documentary, it's a shame that the filmmaker, Simon Klose has been so quiet for the last few years. It's an interesting editorial choice to show Peter Sunde buying a parking ticket and displaying it @ 32min and then Fredrik discarding a parking ticket @ 1hour. Maybe the director wanted to show that while the people behind the site had similar opinions their motives were completely polarised. Or it was just showing that Fredrik didn't give a damn anymore since he had been served a 7million pound fine. Either way both guys got pretty much the same punishment.

Before the Flood reviewed documentary cover image

Before the Flood

Elon Musk, the only bad piece of the whole film. There is nothing renewable about the product Elon Musk's company produces, period. Electric cars need to be charged using the same electricity you use for your TV and light. This means that whatever pollution you don't see from your electric car because it doesn't burn fossil fuel directly simply is being emitted when that electricity is produced burning coal or natural gas. So there is nothing renewable about the electric cars. On top of that, the batteries used in the electric cars cause huge pollution. Unless all electricity is produced by solar or wind power, electric cars are much worse than regular cars, and if all electricity is all produced by solar and wind power, electric cars still have to solve the pullution caused by the production and disposal of batteries to become environment friendly. Don't be fooled by Elon Musk. He is no different than the Koch brothers, maybe a bit better but not that much.

Citizenfour reviewed documentary cover image


Read The Snowden Files, by Luke Harding. It does a much much better job on unfolding the events of June 2013.

The documentary had so much potential, but it fell flat.

The documentary is just an interview with Snowden. It leaves out so much interesting things. What The Guardian had to go through to publish, how the american newpapers got the leaks, how Assange helped Snowden in Moscow.

I expected so much more and Snowden deserved more.
Oscar undeserved.

I thought they would return to the sloth towards the end of the episode. You know, just to show that he was able to get to the girl or not. Guess he was left hanging after all, just like I was, waiting for a closure to the sloth's story. Epic documentary nevertheless! More please!!
