    Actually really opened up my eyes to what's actually happening around us and done in a stylish way with an amazing soundtrack and an awesome frontrunner. 4 years 4 months ago

    Before the Flood is Leonardo DiCaprio's response to being made United Nations envoy in matters relating to the environment. Like An Inconvenient Truth, it looks at climate change's effects all around the world, and spends a fair amount of time explaining the science and exposing the practices and policies that are making the situation worse every day. It's a depressing piece of film, of course, even more so 2 years after it was made, as any hope it gives seems to have been destroyed by the current U.S. regime's corporate agenda. The message is valuable, to be sure, but there's an important discrepancy between DiCaprio's written voice-over, which is good, and his onscreen presence where he's mostly stunned, repeating an expert's words to make sure he gets it, or lobbing soft questions at politicians. At least his high profile means more people might see this and start to believe climate change is real and, if addressed soon, eventually reversible. 2 years 10 months ago
