A Crude Awakening Reviews:

In 2004, the loud and politically motivated director Michael Moore made a splash with Fahrenheit 9/11, lambasting the Bush administration and making rude noises about the connections between oil and politics. The lack of academic rigour in his movie allowed it to be dismissed as disingenuous, although it created plenty of waves in the minds of the anti-Bush camp, at least. Then in 2005, Stephen Gaghan made Syriana, a tense, well-researched, politically charged drama about the oil industry - which made plenty of sense to those steeped in globe politics and economics, without outwardly offending anybody. Actually in 2006 two directors in Switzerland create A Crude Awakening - The Oil Crash, a painstaking documentary about the frighteningly central role of oil in our lives. Gelpke has a background in anthropology, economics before working as a news/war reporter and then becoming involved in scientific film-making. McCormack worked in corporate film-making and documentaries but also holds an Honours Degree in Environmental Privacy and Management. As you might expect, this movie relies not on hearsay or fictionalised evidence, but interviews with notable academics, experts and advisors from across the political, corporate and economic spectrum. The film's official site is awash with official protocols, reports, and another evidence to support you check their sources. It has no discernible political axe to grind. In another words, it's difficult to ignore.Maybe you've read a lot of literature and have made some connections. You know that the world faces an energy crisis. Yes? Think again. If you thought it was serious, multiply that a hundred-fold and begin examining it on your mother's life - or rather that of your children. If you thought there was a connection between oil and foreign policy, nice or bad, stop and realise that the underlying mechanics are much deeper than that and go to the root of things you never even dreamed of. Stop, and imagine your cosy globe coming to an end.A Crude Awakening begins off by calling oil 'the excrement of the devil'. That is the first and last piece of rhetoric - the rest is cold examination of evidence; which is perhaps one of the reasons it then has to work so difficult to create its rather dry topics interesting . . . I was tired enough to nod off while watching it, but the cold and attentive facts started seeping down my neck until I was almost in a state of shock.Oil and another fossil fuels, compared to human physical labour, is so efficient as to create it look almost gratis by comparison. If we take away everything around us in our modern globe that has not been affected by oil in some way, from meal to manufacturing (but particularly transport), there is hardly anything left. Our cities, have consequently been designed and built (unlike most of those in Asia and much of the world, that pre-date the rise of oil) around an almost never-ending supply of cheap oil. There is no 'easy going back.' With Western supplies dwindling, and the main sources being ever more in the hands of rogue or unstable governments, oil, essential to our continued method of life (and a modern method of life that developing countries would emulate), becomes a catalyst and magnet for war. From 1945, the promise of safety to Saudi rulers became the exchange currency for the promise of a cheap supply of oil. Ordinary Saudis however have seen a heavy drop in their quality of life, which has led to discontent and the attraction of terrorism, especially by migrating to neighbouring countries where there is are bigger power vacuums.The show lifestyle of the West, according to the range of least-to-most optimistic figures presented in the film, is impossible to maintain. This produces some bleak options. 1) militarise oil - in another words, tell to people, if you wish to hold your actual method of life and show civilisation, be prepared for a lot of fights to safe the oil necessary; or 2) kick oil dependence, which means developing fresh technology. Although some of the scientists in the movie test to be upbeat about never underestimating the human capacity for technology, they mercilessly dissect the show known options to present that, even with the greatest outcomes, the effect would be the tiniest drop in the ocean of what is required.In the absence of sufficient fossil fuels, they recommend that a globe population of the actual size would be hard to maintain. We have an unsustainable lifestyle. Pushed into the corner, do you wish to receive the bike to work - even if it's fifty miles away? Or do you wish to say, it's a future generation's problem? Place so starkly, the neo-con solution of 'democratising the Middle East' to ensure oil supplies in a publicly acceptable (or marketable) way, sounds a more realistic me-first solution than many liberals would care to admit . . . How much globe poverty and deprivation, not in third globe countries but our own, can the we stomach - and how much will our kids have to stomach? Would you rather not know? Or do you maybe wish to see this movie . . .


This is a stunning movie that covers the oil question in a method never viewed before. What impressed me was the calm factual reasoning/questioning/answering/reviewing without the emotional drama normally associated with going to the cinema. This movie filled in many gaps, that really made sense to me of what was going on and has been going on for a very long time. It has impressed me so much that I have started going back to review history because of all the questions it has raised for me. This movie puts into perspective and also gives me many answers for the bloodshed carried out in many of the fights of the last century, and continuing into this century. When you have seen it there is a recognition, as when you receive news/information/diagnosis that makes you go AH ! That explains it !For me it was like getting an economic clinical diagnosis - of an economic terminal illness. And these are the reasons why.... And we've ignored all the symptoms...... And all the indicators...... And actually with the greatest will in the globe we will probably still have a large decline, before things can receive better, if they ever will...... But - by doing nothing we will have an economic meltdown.By waking up and taking action - by making sure those in charge take action, we can slow the process and ensure that developing countries need to divert into renewable energy rather than old energy (oil) to achieve their aspirations.There is a lot that can be done, starting with the reasons why that are portrayed in this film. It is absolutely nice to see such a movie on a large screen - but I gotta remember that this is true - this is our lives/lifestyles we are watching going up in smoke. While cinema is the vehicle, but this is not a movie about create trust - in fact it is doing the opposite of what movies are normally about and using itself as a means to receive us to believe. This is my honest reaction so far after having seen this movie only once over a week ago. Initially I thought it a bit repetitive, but afterward I was glad as it has made it memorable, to the mission that I can't allow it drop. I look at everything differently and through a various value system. It really is like you hear of how folks re-evaluate after getting a diagnosis of a terminal disease - that is what this movie has done for me. I can't wait to receive keep of a copy of the DVD.It is the greatest movie I have ever seen - and the game couldn't have been better !


Those whom the documentary "A Crude Awakening" fails to awaken now, to the quick approaching consequences of peaked oil depletion, at a time of unprecedented, and ever growing demand, just may not be awakeable, or won't likely wake up before it's too late.Unlike that another much hyped Hollywood liberal misappropriation of the catastrophic global warming issue, to serve the private needs of one disingenuous politician, "A Crude Awakening" is a Swiss production, that employs a broad range of viewpoints, from 27 scientists and energy experts, who's collective opinions all deliever greater credibility to the message.There's enough notification concisely crammed into this one and half hour movie for it to be the basis of a full semester's self-directed course of study... perhaps few semesters. In the unique features, included on the DVD version, there is an additional chapter on the issues of petrostates, and four extended interviews with the following experts:Colin Campbell: Oil geologist; consultant to numerous oil companies; and founder of ASPO www.peakoil.netMatt Simmons: Energy investment analyst; creator of "Twilight in the Desert"Fadhil Chalabi: Former Acting Secretary-General of OPEC; and former Iraqi Oil MinisterDavid L. Goodstein: Professor of Physics and Applied Physics at the California Institute of TechnologyWhile many viewing this documentary might perceive its realistic appraisal of the demise of cheap and abundant energy as pessimistic, I consider it to be objectively quite optimistic, considering that it did not linger long on the very inconvenient truth that there are over six billion folks wanting to have a petroleum based high standard of living, that can't possibly be sustained for much longer, even if there were only two billion folks wanting it. "Civilization" has only ever had one respond for that type of problem. The thin thread that "A Crude Awakening" seems to hang its optimism on is the assumption that if enough folks become totally aware of this fully unavoidable happening sooner, rather than later, then human ingenuity, combined with a lvl of human cooperation the globe has never before seen, might possibly attenuate the consequences for at least some of those who awaken.
