Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Irena Salina's astonishingly wide-ranging film is less depressing than galvanizing, an informed and heartfelt examination of the tug of war between public health and private interests.
Rotten: All of Salina's interviews and data tell a graphic story about corporate water piracy, the complicity of governments, the burden put on the poor and the scam of bottled water. But she can't quite jam it all in and still have a film that, well, flows.
Fresh: As if we didn't have enough to worry about.
Fresh: Along with this sobering information, filmmaker Irena Salina's docu includes a distinct note of optimism that should help the film flow smoothly through the festival pipeline before eventually settling on DVD.
