Garbage Warrior Review

Image for Garbage Warrior

A documentary telling the epic story of maverick US architect Michael Reynolds.

★★★★

Hippie architect Michael Reynolds has spent the past 35 years creating eco-friendly homes known as “Earthships”. Using beer cans and tyres to hold the structures together, he came up with a way of life that requires none of the traditional household fuels. Running foul of American planning mandates, he found his buildings threatened, but in the wake of the Boxing Day Tsunami and Hurricane Katrina, he has found recognition at last. Brit filmmaker Oliver Hodge’s documentary initially depicts its subject as a bit of an ass, but it gradually becomes obvious that Reynolds is a true humanitarian, offering a real alternative to modern living.
