The 11th Hour
U.S.A. 2007

Opening 15 Nov 2007

Directed by: Nadia Conners
Writing credits: Nadia Conners, Leonardo DiCaprio, Leila Conners Peterson

This swank documentary on the state of the environment is directed by Nadia Conners and Leila Conners Petersen and boasts co-writer/narrator/producer Leonardo DiCaprio, which along with the topic, will ensure its success. Be ready for a treatise more appropriate in a classroom or boardroom than in movie houses. Even stony Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth was a much more accessible and entertaining film on the same subject. More "infomercial" than film, as film implies artfulness, The 11th Hour supplies viewers with endless doomsday testimonies which do become tiresome, even when given by the likes of Dr. Stephen Hawking, Dr. Andrew Weil, James Woolsey, etc. All in all good information and I love Leonardo on the screen anytime, so bring your notebook along and hopefully the message will sink in.
