  • Summary: A visually stunning, vastly entertaining and awe-inspiring look-back to the dawn and development of the modern environmental movement—from its post-war rustlings in the 1950s to the first wildly successful 1970 Earth Day celebration and the subsequent firestorm of political action.

  1. A rapturous and enlightening look at the history of the environmental movement in America.
  2. Devotees of the "Whole Earth Catalogue" may regard this film as a nostalgia trip, but it's much more comprehensive, more forward-looking than that.
  3. Reviewed by: Justin Chang
    A moving, elegiac, deeply contemplative work that leaves the viewer not with a save-the-world checklist, but rather a spirit of hopeful reflection.
  4. Feels like a prolonged campfire conversation, filled with weathered, measured talk about holistic thinking and finding a new perspective.
  5. There's great archival footage.
  6. There is a sense of sadness around Earth Days, a sense that opportunities were not capitalized on, that not enough was done.
  7. A sedate chronicle of the highs and lows of the environmental movement, Earth Days is less a rousing call to action than a bittersweet stroll down memory lane.
