Buzz: Chris Smith has picked one hell of a subject to interview – the whistleblower of all whistleblowers. TIFF’s Thom Powers says the style “recalls the work of Errol Morris and Spalding Gray” and let me tell you, a one-on-one interview with an unpopular person as was the case with Morris’ The Fog of War resulted in one hell of a fascinating watch.
The Gist: It’s an awfully lonely world when the people around you don’t want the bad news. From the acclaimed director of American Movie, this portrait of radical thinker Michael Ruppert explores his apocalyptic vision of the future, spanning the crises in economics, energy, environment and more.
