No Mall Movies! (Chicago Cinema)
8 October 2013
Film: GO FURTHER (dir. Ron Mann, 2003, U.S.)
Forum: Home        Format: DVD (Chicago Public Library)
Observations: A documentary about carving out your own, sustainable, guilt-free and ever-so-slightly sanctimonious lifestyle. I liked it, including the way in which it inverted the role of product-placements (a huffer taking slugs off a 2-liter Coke was especially memorable), and how it both kidded and took very seriously the alternative lifestyle of minimizing waste and damage to the ecology. It manages to make environmentalism seem even a little romantic.
