About the Movie

"Fuel” is a comprehensive and entertaining look at energy in America: a history of where we have been, our present predicament and a solution to our dependence on foreign oil. Rousing and reactionary, "Fuel” is an amazing, in-depth, personal journey of oil use and abuse as it examines wide-ranging energy solutions other than oil, the faltering US auto and petroleum industries, and the latest stirrings of the American mindset toward alternative energy. As first time director and narrator of the film, Josh Tickell offers a virtual tour guide through the drama of fuel, the history, the politics, the mess that the world is in and the fascinating alternatives for a way out. In the movie, he interviews politicians, historians, professors and a sprinkling of activist celebrities, all of whom have their own take on one of the most important and pressing concerns of the modern era. Interviews with a wide range of environmentalists, policy makers and educators, along with such “green” celebrities as Woody Harrelson, Sheryl Crow and Larry Hagman offer serious fuel for thought. "Fuel” encourages the discussion about the consequences of abusing our oil resources. Especially now, during this moment of “Change” going on in our country, it is extremely important to examine all the factors that have contributed to not only the economic meltdown, but also the environmental crisis and this country’s position in the world. And now as Americans look for answers and seek accountability, "Fuel” can help break the discussion wide open as it exposes the shocking connections between the auto industry, the oil industry and government, while exploring alternative energies such as solar wind, electricity and non-food based biofuels.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Thanks to an informative, buoyant tone and the director's own restless intelligence, the film preaches to the unconverted with passion, energy and graphics so clear that they would make Al Gore weep all over his PowerPoint. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Smartly animated interstitials, memorable archival material and a lively soundtrack round out the fast-paced proceedings. – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: There's not a single (even moderately) dissenting voice in Fuel; you're either on the biodiesel bandwagon or raping the planet. – Brian Miller, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: A peppy, bouncy documentary that is watchable and informative, although Tickell's celebrity name-dropping at times detracts from the serious message. – G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Chronicle, Apr 12, 2011
