Fox | 2011 | US | 107m

7:00 at IFC

“With its jolting images of flammable tap water and chemically burned pets, [Gasland] makes an irrefutable case against U.S. corporate “fracking”—the Haliburton-hatched scheme of natural gas drilling in and around the nation’s shale basins… Describing himself as “not a pessimist,” director Josh Fox nonchalantly exposes EPA conflicts of interest and fingers the “Haliburton loophole”—a curious exemption to the 2005 Energy Act as cooked up by ex-Haliburton exec Dick Cheney. No mere collection of talking heads, the doc expertly juxtaposes instances of natural beauty with those of mechanized incursion, practically making us feel the toxic chemicals spilling off the screen… There’s only one conclusion to draw here: No fracking way.”
Rob Nelson, Village Voice
