First of all, I want to say that I'm not a fan of the Anthropocene. It seems to be a pretty broad term, and it's hard to say what exactly it means to be human. I also can't help thinking that if a particular moment or historical event in the last 100,000 years was so great, that something equally great could have happened in the next 100,000 years. That said, this documentary is well worth seeing, and has some great insights into the potential implications of global warming. The first half of the documentary covers the history of humans. In the second half, we learn more about how human activities have caused global warming. The documentary is very well made, and I was surprised that it was not advertised as a "documentary". Instead, the title gives away the subject, and it's hard to understand what it's actually about. The people who are interviewed in the documentary are scientists, and some of them are very well known scientists. The scientific data provided is of the same standard as what you'd get from a university library. The documentary isn't about the potential effects of global warming. It's about the potential effects of human activities on the climate. And it's about the implications of climate change for many different species of organisms, including the Earth's own biosphere. The potential implications are serious, but not overwhelming. In the end, the documentary is not a great documentary. It's certainly not a documentary that you'd want to watch for any reason other than to see some good science presented, and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who doesn't already know what they're looking at. It's worth seeing though, and I recommend it to anyone interested in the science of global warming. This is one of the few documentaries I've seen that actually goes into some depth on the topic. I give it a "B+" for that reason.

Anthropocene: The Human Epoch (2015) Dir: Matt Schmidlin / Cast: John Hurt, Rachel Weisz, Dylan McDermott, David Thewlis, Viggo Mortensen, Jena Malone: Very bleak, thought-provoking documentary that runs the gamut from focusing on what it means to be human to focusing on the environment and how human beings have made a difference in the last century. In the end, it is the animals that have done the most good, the most while, and the most of the harm. With a plot that is both fascinating and relatable, it explores the effects of human-induced climate change and what we can do to reverse it. John Hurt, Rachel Weisz, Dylan McDermott, David Thewlis, and Viggo Mortensen all play various characters and each has a different effect on the viewer. Weisz and Thewlis play the scientists who have come to be aware of the effect human beings have had on the environment. Hurt is a real-life science teacher who goes back to his former place of study to tell his class that human beings are responsible for destroying the environment and he urges his students to stop using fossil fuels. McDermott plays an environmental activist who says "It is time to face the facts." Thewlis plays an American President who is also a scientist and advocate for the environment. Mortensen plays a computer scientist who is more concerned about technology than the environment. Weisz is played by an environmentalist who is more concerned about technology than the environment. Hurt and McDermott are cast as teachers who have done something to the environment. Thewlis plays a pastor who has a message for his congregation and asks them to stop using fossil fuels. Mortensen plays a scientist who says "We've got to turn back the clock." The film is a little bit too short but it does work on its subject matter and it's thoughtful. It's also a bit depressing and depressing but at the same time it's not. Thewlis has a few good points. The film does have a few good points. It is very graphic at times and some of the imagery is more disturbing than anything else. There are also some very interesting things to discuss about the environment and it's impact on people and animals. The film is thoughtful and it's an intriguing documentary that will leave you thinking about it. It's worth seeing for sure.

This documentary is a must see for anyone who wants to be informed about our changing climate and our impact on the planet. As an avid climatologist, I can tell you that we are going to experience a change in the climate as a result of the human emission of CO2. We have already passed the tipping point. We are rapidly moving to a new world with increasing temperatures and less ice cover. Over the past 100 years, the planet's average temperature has increased by 0.6 degrees F. A 3 degree increase in temperature is projected for the next few decades. The question that remains is how much can we go without a global catastrophe. Climate change is not a distant problem, it is here and now and it is here to stay. The Earth's climate is changing and will continue to change. The changes are a result of human activity and will be either a good or a bad thing. If the future is not good, humans may just be able to recover or survive without any help from our environment. The human race will be forced to adapt to the changing climate and there is no guarantee that this will be good. The same goes for our environment. The question is how we are going to survive and whether or not we will be able to recover or survive as a species. To the extent that we adapt to the changing climate, we may or may not be able to recover from the effects of global warming. This is a very good documentary that I highly recommend. It is well-made and has a great message. It's very timely, it gives you a good understanding of what is at stake for the future of humanity.

This film is based on the Gaia hypothesis which states that the Earth's biosphere was not fully populated and therefore no life can be described as thriving. (It's essentially a search for its replacement.) Some believe that this means the planet is heading for a catastrophic breakup. If so, it will be extremely hard to find a place where life will be particularly healthy. In this film, Tars Tarkovsky, a former Soviet scientist and renowned Soviet cinema critic, presents one such place. He has been moved to observe life and death in various districts of the old USSR. All the inhabitants of the district that includes his old village are dying. Tarkovsky is a poet who has produced several works of art and literature. He lived in an open-air studio in the town of Malaga, but was forced to move in when he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. After spending several months with the villagers, he thinks they will all die. He is wrong. They still live. After his film, the chief of the district tells him that they will all live until the end of the world. There are almost two million of them. That's a lot of people to go through. The survivors survive on an average diet of 1.5 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight per day. There are no restrictions. They still have a wide variety of foods to choose from. They can use every method of contraception, including a child. The only thing that they all have in common is the consumption of livestock and plants. They have an average of 150 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight. In addition, they are given some basic medical treatments to prevent blood loss and preserve organs. The villagers also have access to a hospital. Some, however, do not have the means to travel to the hospital. For them, the journey can be difficult, with a very long journey time, and expensive transportation. "Most of the people are huddled in small cabins. Every hut has a bucket with water," says one man. "The older men and women tend to the young men, or they might join the men for the trips to the hospital. They tend to be the ones who will die," he explains. There is no need for transportation. They take horses or donkeys for transport. They are of different nationalities and speak the same language. These people are willing to risk their lives for their country. They don't eat or drink anything harmful to them or their livestock. These people have seen their children die from eating bad food. Many of them have never been in a hospital. Most of the visitors have died in the last few years. "In that village, there are only six other men, all of them near the age of 80. But they all have one thing in common. They all eat meat," says Tarkovsky. "Meat is banned in the village. There are five reasons why. One, they just can't afford to buy it." But Tarkovsky doesn

We see a close-up of the People's Republic of China's new train depot - while it is being constructed, the cameraman explains how the human race is trying to convert Earth into a sustainable and densely populated place. Eventually, we see a close-up of a human fetus, but for a short period. It's a complex subject. This is a movie that moves quickly. We have the China Railway station in Beijing, then the North Korean border. Then we see a robotic arm stretching across the desert to fill a silo. From there it is to Manchuria, then to Shanghai, then to Hong Kong, and finally to Beijing. We see a handful of industrial plants in Shanghai, each of which was threatened with closure. There is much talk of the "Little Tokyo" and "Da Nang" - even if the film is limited to just one country. It is not an action movie; it is not a documentary. There are no celebrities to move the story along, no great images of architectural marvels, nothing. It is a human documentary with a documentary director. This is not your ordinary documentary. As the documentary moves forward we are shown different pictures, ranging from the environment, to the relations between humans and non-humans. It is a personal journey from the people of China to the people of the world. The film takes us to different places, and you will find yourself lost in the trip. We end up at Beijing, the North Korean border, to a thriving economy in Beijing, and then to the Yunnan Province of China. There is lots of info about culture, from shamans to Taoism, from herbs to acupuncture. There are even more spiritual stories about how different cultures relate to each other and to each other. I found the film to be interesting and interesting to be taken on. It was very educational. There were no flashy montages of the film; it was very laid back. It's not a Hollywood style movie. It is very calm. Overall, this was a great film. It will be something for people who want to know more about what is happening to the environment and human beings. Overall, I give it an 8/10.

So why does this documentary about the Anthropocene bother me so much? It's not that the story is lacking in substance. There is certainly a lot of interest in how humanity has gone from our hunting-gathering ancestors to the civilization we live in today and the implications this has on the rest of the world. The film seems to go in and out of trying to tell us exactly how the world will look in 10,000 years, but ultimately ends up not coming across very convincing and lacking in nuance and insight. Rather, it tries to tell us a lot of little tidbits of information we already know, but it never explains what that knowledge means or how it ties into humanity as a whole. For instance, the film talks about how the Anthropocene is a sort of time warp, but never really shows how this does or why this is a bad thing. Perhaps that's because it's the audience's knowledge that we're trying to impart on the film that will save us. I certainly don't mind what the film tells us, but it's a little hard to swallow the message it gives. On the other hand, the film does touch on important issues that don't have a definitive answer (the economy and the future of the planet, perhaps?), but is delivered with a pretty serious tone and that's a big plus. Overall, I'd say this film is a very decent effort, but it fails to make a compelling case for the Anthropocene. It's more a case of trying to explain the Anthropocene, rather than give you a reason to care about it.
