Last Call at the Oasis: A Review

Last Call at the Oasis

I have put off watching this movie for years, as I felt like it was going to be too similar to the myriad of other water movies I have seen. And, while there are lots of similarities, I really enjoyed this one. I particularly liked that it focused on all of the water basics: water quality, water quantity, water rights, wastewater treatment, the EPA, the precautionary principle, bottled water, recycled wastewater,and several other topics. The only water topic that was glaringly missing was that of water privitization. Despite this, it gives a good summary of worldwide water problems and gives water issues the urgency they truly need.
The film was well done, interesting, and even funny at times. And, the best part of this movie  (for me) is that it will be perfect to show in my spring class when we talk about water. It will go hand in hand with many of the ideas we will talk about in lecture. Pin It Now!
