Limited in scope, somehow lacking the eloquence needed to become a serious divulgative project. However the subject matter is rarely discussed in today's world and carries loads of significance and polemic on its own. Despite the fact that the issue is barely scrutinised and Devil's advocate is never played, the maths should easily be contrasted and opens the way to a new welcome look at enviromentalism.
A terrifying situation, but a poor doc. The camera, the ilustrations was quite amateur, but the most disturbing is the lack in the exploration of the theme giving you a vision of the worl black or white, with no grey areas, or any other color. Besides they never really explore one point to is bottom, missing a choesive line of argumenta
Rather unimpressed. Despite agreeing with the overall argument, the approach of this documentary irked me - as one stat leaps to another argument. The final straw was dismissing overpopulation in just one breath. Cowspiracy takes exactly the approach (i.e. not challenging a controversial lifestyle choice they know few are likely to change) as they so harangue the large charities for. I await CHILDSPIRACY...
A good film with a terrifying message. A few issues though. The camera work is very poor, often way overexposed. Once you notice, it's a distraction. Secondly, the '...spiracy' part of it is either thin or under-investigated; either there's nothing there or they lost their bottle. Now, everything else I really enjoyed. This belongs in the cannon of Docs that, when put together, reveal the rot in our system.
A theme that easily passes unnoticed, developed in a strategic way: not only is cruel, it is also bad for the environment, the human kind and not as gainful as you may think. It gives you a new perspective about the subject and it may shed a light in the general opinion and maybe erradicate all the dirty and ignored politics connected with animal production.
Very versatile, concise and informative documentary which tactically prioritizes the environment over animal treatment —which certainly gets attention too—, thereby emphasizing the absolutely important perspective to anyone. Many of the arguments and calculations are easy to follow, which contributes to the credibility and comprehensibility of this film. This film actually might have persuaded me to go vegan.
A brilliant documentary that while starts slow, never stops asking questions and seeking their answers. It is exhaustive, eager, devastating, subversive, and wildly inspiring. Life-changing. An activist's/artist's sort of hope that lies in generating new or different consciousness in others. A must-see for all who care for the earth.
