A Broad Spectrum Look at the Impact of the Coal Industry and Its Politics
16 July 2017 | by alexaragSee all my reviews

This movie impressed me in how the center of its focus was the impact on *people* attached to this large and influential industry in the United States.

Whether you're on the "side" of the coal miner who may or may not loose his job because of new government regulations or you sympathize more with environmental protection and pollution causes, this movie is still a must-watch for those who care about the direction of the coal industry in the United States.

It doesn't matter what your political stripes are. It is important that one watches this film by first pushing aside politics, environmentalism, union issues, etc. in favour of understanding that the large crap-show created by government, the coal industry, and its surrounding groups in the United States has a real impact on real people.
