Crude Impact

"Crude Impact goes deep and expansive on the political, environmental, and cultural costs of American dependence on oil."
- Tasha Robinson, Chicago Tribune
"Ahead of us lie many more documentaries similar in tone and spirit to this one. We can hope that at least a few of them are as intelligently and artfully made."
- A.O Scott, New York Times
"Here'’s a powerhouse of a documentary that makes you feel mad as hell and unwilling to take it anymore."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"It's a David-and-Goliath tale, full of anger and disturbing accusation, but it's also inspiring."
- Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Crude's moving testimony and careful documentation make it hard to turn away from this issue. It will certainly remain in your mind the next time you stop for gas."
- Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
