    Raises an interesting question. Do you clamp down on corporations in order to protect the environment or do you let them go about their business because they help feed countless families.

    The film is a dispiriting experience.
  3. Beautifully shot but overly spare documentary.
  4. Even at 70 minutes, The Charcoal People becomes repetitive and hopeless.
