Plot Summary

Filmed over the past two years and across nine countries, Greedy Lying Bastards is a searing indictment of the influence, deceit and corruption that defines the fossil fuel industry. It documents the impact of an industry that puts profits before people, wages a campaign of lies to thwart measures to combat climate change, uses its clout to minimize infringing regulations and undermines the political process in the U.S. and abroad. By interweaving the stories of the victims of the Gulf oil spill and the global climate crisis, it lays bare the industry's deliberate pattern of irresponsibility. And, while oil companies worldwide exert influence over policies that will protect their revenues, those who speak out against the industry's reckless practices risk their livelihoods, and in some instances, their lives.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Collated for momentum, the film's many interviews, wide-ranging archival footage and montage of modern ecological disasters form a blunt but carefully positioned instrument. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Mar 7, 2013

Fresh: The film's effectiveness largely stems from the flat-out lameness of the opposition arguments, the lack of scientific credentials of those making them, and the self-interest of their corporate bosses. – Ronnie Scheib, Variety, Mar 8, 2013

Fresh: Craig Rosebraugh is clearly out to take no prisoners in his timely documentary tracking the politics, inconvenient truths and alternative "realities" of the endless global warming debate. – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, Mar 7, 2013

Rotten: The film's structural flaws appear to stem from the lack of access to oil industry titans and the other usual suspects. (To be fair, the filmmakers tried.) – David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle, Mar 7, 2013
