Fuel

The world is addicted to oil... It's time for an intervention.


Fuel
Better late than never, I suppose. Dating from 2008/2009, and having lost some impact due to not releasing when the oil price peaked, Fuel is an insightful portrait of America's addiction to oil and an uplifting testament to the immediacy of new energy solutions. The director, a young activist, shuttles us on a whirlwind journey to track the rising domination of the petrochemical industry, from Rockefeller's strategy to halt Ford's first ethanol cars to Vice President Cheney's petrochemical company sponsored energy legislation, and reveals a gamut of available solutions to ''repower America,'' from vertical farms that occupy skyscrapers to algae facilities that turn wastewater into fuel.

What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Theresa Smith quote iconDocumentary fuels 'green' oil debate.
10
Box Office
Steve Ramos quote iconA strong educational outreach campaign and networking via environmental groups will increase Fuel 's theatrical profile, but Tickell is no Michael Moore and the film's rambling content makes crossover business outside the environmental activist community unlikely.
