ejonline's rating of the film Behemoth

The framing device didn't work for me, but perhaps I don't know the Divine Comedy well enough to catch the nuances. I also agree with the criticism that since the workers do not speak, they are reduced to types. However, the film does capture nature of their work in great detail. It is true that there are many films highlighting the destruction of the planet, but I'm not sure presenting more details is a bad thing.
