About the Movie

Bikes vs Cars depicts a global crisis that we all deep down know we need to talk about: Climate, earth's resources, cities where the entire surface is consumed by the car. An ever-growing, dirty, noisy traffic chaos. The bike is a great tool for change, but the powerful interests who gain from the private car invest billions each year on lobbying and advertising to protect their business. In the film we meet activists and thinkers who are fighting for better cities, who refuse to stop riding despite the increasing number killed in traffic.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Breezy, intelligent, diffuse but uncluttered, Fredrik Gertten's documentary "Bikes vs Cars" could be called a tale of congestion-plagued cities. – Andy Webster, New York Times, Dec 3, 2015

Fresh: Gertten has put in the time to capture how these cities' unique scenarios unfold to mount a compelling case against the powerful automotive, oil and construction lobbies. – Martin Tsai, Los Angeles Times, Dec 4, 2015

Rotten: This surprisingly critical portrayal of a cyclist's utopia raises all kinds of issues about traffic planning and bike safety that the doc does not address. – Kate Taylor, Globe and Mail, Jul 31, 2015

Rotten: Director Fredrik Gertten breaks little new ground as he salts the picture with statistics in support of interviews with bicycle proponents to buttress his theme. – Soren Anderson, Seattle Times, Dec 3, 2015
