Uses astonishing visuals to tell the intersecting stories of George Mallory, the first man to attempt a summit of Mount Everest, and Conrad Anker, the mountaineer who finds Mallory's frozen remains 75 years later.
Revenge of the Electric Car presents the recent resurgence of electric vehicles as seen through the eyes of four pioneers of the EV revolution. Director Chris Paine (Who Killed the Electric Car? 2006) has had unprecedented access to the electric car research and development programs at General Motors, Nissan, and Tesla Motors, while also following a part time electric car converter who refuses to wait for the international car makers to create the electric cars the public demands. As more models of electric cars than ever before start to arrive in showrooms and driveways across the world, Chris Paine's film offers an inspiring, entertaining and definitive account of this revolutionary moment in human transportation. Revenge of the Electric Car follows these auto makers as they race each other to create the first, best, and most publicly accepted electric cars for the new car market.Written by
There is no reason in this piece of film. Only hysterics. More than an hour of emotion to feed the people who want to be angry at something.
There was an electric car. It is gone. The audience gets to see the crushed car bodies nicely done from the air. How was that car? There is no technical description. No parameters. Just the feeling of an actor. Sure, as a rich actor he probably droves lots of cars, but the comparison was probably left on the editing floor.
And that miracle car was literally crushed. Why? No answer. The gesture is so dramatic and so illogical and the speakers talk about the before and after, never why.
As for specialists? A politician who does not like the air he breathes so he builds a career in that place. Reliable. Was he one of the paper pushers who helped kill that electric car? Who cares! He is on "our side" so he must be a "good guy". Other technical people: an actor, one so busy you can see him taking time to become an engineer. And a columnist. He is an English major probably, but he heard a lot of hearsay back in the day when he was doing filed work instead of just reading the blogs as today.
So watch it, if you need to fuel your confirmation bias.
