Early reviews after the jump.
“Constructed around a filmed speech that scientist-broadcaster David Suzuki gave to a sold-out audience at the University of British Columbia, this documentary about his life could be the most persuasive argument yet that saving the environment is the most critical fight for human rights occurring today.”
– The Globe & Mail
“The film follows Suzuki as he revisits the Second World War–era internment camp he lived in as a boy, to Hiroshima, to the Tennessee research lab where he earned his stripes, to UBC, and the halls of the CBC headquarters. Suzuki’s life is not only fascinating, but inspiring, and Force of Nature offers a crash course for anyone unsure as to why Suzuki remains our nation’s most prominent environmental activist…”
– John Semley, Torontoist
“…it’s the less comfortable subjects that compel and make this documentary so appealing. Being divorced and spending most of his time working, Suzuki acknowledges his limitations as a family man, sounding far more passionate when discussing environmental peril and implicit human stupidity.”
– Robert Bell, exclaim.ca
“A love letter to the promises of science and the wonders of nature, Force of Nature is also a damning condemnation of greed, racism and short-sighted development”
I did actually catch this on CBC sometime later. Not bad, a personal look into a Canadian icon.
