Plot
A documentary examining the controversial process of hydraulic fracturing in the US.


Review
GasLand
Just how many more documentaries are going to indict Dick Cheney and Halliburton for putting profit before people? The latest is a potent exposé of the hydraulic fracturing process that has been employed across the United States to explore for natural gas and has caused a spate of environmental and health crises that have been ignored by the participating companies and their political allies. Despite occasionally being prone to self-promotion, director Josh Fox assembles his case with a mix of hard evidence and agit-prop poetry that may alienate some. But this is one of those occasions where the message matters more than the mode of conveyance, especially as ‘fracking’ is destined to be used in Europe, too.


Verdict
Josh Fox puts a fresh spin on a well-drilled - if continually relevant - story.
