A Piece Well Put!
11 June 2011 | by futhark30See all my reviews

The film's central argument is portrayed clearly and effectively throughout, discussing the role the Army Corp Of Engineers had in the flooding after Hurricane Katrina. It was convincing and informative, drawing attention to an interesting element of the disaster I personally was not familiar with.

At the same time, the material avoided being dry or overly technical, offering an infusion of the New Orleans character in the presentation, the occasional splash of dry humor, and a deeply personal element as it went into the lives and unfortunate outcomes of those who offered evidence in the making of this movie. That last element additionally was personal enough to remind me of those I've known over the years that embody an unrelenting dedication to their ideals despite the consequences.

Viewing it, I was attentive as the evidence mounted at a constant rate throughout the picture, and drawn in to the personal stories of those who were involved in the events to transpire.
