Movie Review: Greedy Lying Bastards
Greedy Lying Bastards
3 out of 5 Stars
Director: Craig Scott Rosebraugh
Recommended to: Those looking for a film with an environmental agenda that is filled with some frightening and undeniable issues that truly can’t be ignored.
Craig Scott Rosebraugh is an environmentalist that has made a film that is “left-leaning.” He doesn’t try and obscure his bias and no doubt has written and edited his film to best reflect his ideology while making those who have differing opinions look less credible. Sadly there will be those that will use this fact as a way to dismiss “Greedy Lying Bastards” entirely. This would be a mistake. I think that as a society we are smart enough to realize that pollution from industry and cars isn’t helping the environment and that money has an undeniable influence on politicians. “Greedy Lying Bastards” is too one-sided, but it still manages to raise some important issues. Maybe it’s not a doomsday scenario yet, but ignoring or denying a certain amount of responsibility isn’t going to improve anyone’s future.
