Anything but a good-guys-versus bad-guys polemic. It is angry but nuanced, despairing but strangely motivating.

Armstrong predicts that her film will bring about a change in public perception of global warning
NETRIBUTION

Fascinating. The message, never stated but constantly emerging, is that we all have our self-justifying myths. These myths prevent us from engaging with climate change.

A crowd-pleasing film that holds the potential to create public awareness and stir action in support of an ambitious international climate agreement

I felt as if I was watching all my own excuses for not doing anything about climate change being stripped away from me. And it’s tender and funny and wise as well. Can I just pretend I never saw it?
WILLIAM NICHOLSON, Oscar-nominated writer of Gladiator

A captivating and powerful piece of filmmaking as well as a call to save the planet…manages to blend the factual with the emotional without ever feeling too earnest or didanic….thoughtfully put together and well researched, it’s incredibly interesting as well as being, well, a bit terrifying…

Our mistakes are depicted with painstaking detail, clear and precise, so that there is no room for argument…It works as an incitement to action….No stone is left unturned in tracing the route to our destruction…This is a film capable of challenging the most serene attitudes. By maintaining an even tone as she shows the world burning, Armstrong reflects a mentality that still prevails and probably always will.
DONT PANIC

Every single person in the country should be forcibly made to watch this film
KEN LIVINGSTONE

Journalism is solid, instructive and pleasingly thoughtful, largely avoiding a black-and-white and familiar approach to the subject. Entertaining and provocative.
