The critical consensus

Intelligently probed by director Chris Smith and always compelling to watch, the chain-smoking Ruppert's vision of the future should be on everyone's viewing list.

Ruppert is pro-oil, but is allowed his inveighings of epiphanic despair. Self-redeemingly, he ends by proposing we each find a patch of the world to tend as our garden. Give him his due: he is the Voltaire of the eco-crisis age.

(Director Chris Smith) unearths the flawed humanity behind the apocalyptic theorising.

I would have preferred to hear Ruppert on the subject of which he has personal knowledge: that is, the drugs allegation. But this is powerful stuff.

Some of his analysis is way off the mark, but you don't doubt his sincerity.

***(*)(*)Anthony Quinn, The Independent, 01/10/2010

It doesn’t help his case that he faces eviction from his house for non-payment of rent, but some of his warnings have the power to make a listener think twice.

**(*)(*)(*)David Gritten, The Telegraph, 2010

His acute analysis is more persuasive than his somewhat vague suggestions of how the world might evolve.

Philip French, The Observer, 03/10/2010

Focused and interesting.
