Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Always arresting and sometimes troubling, "Watermark" - aside from the odd comment here and there - neither lectures nor argues.
Fresh: A Canadian photographer dedicated to chronicling how man affects the environment turns his attention from land to water with mesmerizing results.
Fresh: It's the majesty and beauty of water at its most pure that stays with us longest.
Rotten: Watermark is a documentary filled with images both beautiful and wrenching, yet the film as a whole is a disappointment.
Low on content. Artistic, but slow and boring
The movie appears like an afterthought... it seems like the producers had a lot of visually attractive content which they put together to weave a story. But, the end product is a very slow, disconnected set of narrations that make little sense. There is no storyline, plot, or major take-always either. It was quite boring right from the beginning. Visuals are good and hence the extra star.
Emotional and informative.
The people that complain about how long it is are just part of the problem we all have these days. They love the visuals but hate waiting for the facts. Amazing. We have turn into a society that can't tolerate getting information unless it comes in the form of 30 second media bites. What they don't understand is that this documentary is trying to show you images that are supposed to convey a feeling. We are supposed to feels excited and amazed by this amazing planet that we have and how we are destroying all their resources, case in point... Water.
