    REVIEW | The Toxic Avenger: Josh Fox's "GasLand"

    Josh Fox's "GasLand" is the paragon of first person activist filmmaking done right. Matching his perspective with a slew of infuriating case studies, Fox explores the influx of hydraulic fracturing (or "fracking"), a method of drilling natural gas that endangers the sanity of water supplies in the i...

We've already covered our #3 ("Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work") and #4 ("Restrepo") highest rated docs in SUNDANCEdaily. Early responses fr...
