The Ambassador #

Released 10/5/2011

Armed with a phalanx of hidden cameras, black-market diplomatic credentials and a bleeding-edge wit, Brügger transforms himself into an outlandish caricature of a European-African consul. As he immerses himself in the life-threatening underworld of nefarious bureaucrats, Brügger encounters blood diamond smuggling, bribery, and even murder -- while somehow managing to crack nice razor-sharp barbs at each step along the way. From every absurdly terrifying/hilarious case to the next, The Ambassador is a one-of-a-kind excursion from the boy whom The Huffington Post has named “the most provocative filmmaker in the world.”

Description: Our healthcare system is broken. Potent forces war to maintain the status quo in a medical industry created for fast fixes, rather than prevention; for profit-driven, rather than patient-driven, care. Healthcare is at the center of an intense political firestorm in our nation's capital. But the actual war over cost and access does not ultimately address the root of the problem: we have a disease-care system, not a health-care one. After decades of opposition, a movement to introduce innovative high-touch, low-cost ways of prevention and healing is finally gaining ground.

Amazon Reviews:

this IMAX was the opitomy of amazing. eye-popping visuals and information, Plotkin gives a detailed description of his line of work. just as fascinating or even better than his ebook "tales of a shamans apprentice", this IMAX will create you wish to visit the amazon and join Tag on one of his expeditions. I thoroughly suggest this to anyone looking for an interesting movie to watch and to be wowed again by Tag Plotkin.It's nice for the entire family. I can't say you how many times I've watched it, but each time gives me other reason to go visit South America. Not only is the IMAX great, but the soundtrack also is very soothing.The IMAX includes jaw-dropping scenes such as a baby sleeping on a mammoth lily-pad while staying fully dry.Plotkin has done it again.


The Amazon basin and the mysterious Indian tribes that live within its rainforests are topics that are very near and dear to me. I studied this a bit in college, and I'm everytime a sucker for a documentary that purports to have fresh footage of the Amazon interior.I paid four bucks last night to watch "Amazon" via on-demand cable. It was a large let-down.Actually, the movie footage was now very impressive. There were the obligatory machu picchu shots, sure, but also some nice shots of the "amazon jungle railroad" which I was thrilled to finally see, nice shots of the enormous headwater canyons in Peru, and some crazy Indian tribe footage where they had what looked like four foot rafters embedded in their chins. Also there were piranha, white-handed gibbons, pink dolphins, and electric eels. Plus shots of the rain forest canopy, which is not something you see very often. The IMAX squad simply got some nice footage out of this. I can't rate it highly enough - I'm sure it wasn't simple to receive either.But the production! I can't trust that somebody didn't place their foot down, and fire the director. The melody made me wish to watch the thing on "mute". 90 mins of Synth-Pan-Flute ensembles... ugggh. The storyline was both retarded and offensive. They tried to create the Medicine Boy Indian into some type of modern explorer or something, but he never had a single clever thing to say. The narrator was not the worst part, but she wasn't very nice either.I'm just really mad that such nice footage was crashed by such a stupid script and then fully trashed by *constant* and extremely annoying background music.I hope someday someone buys the rights to this movie and repackages it into a nice documentary.


Really dumb depiction of "Medicine Man" kind storyline presented in the IMAX format. The cinematography and topics matter fully miss the mark. A shame because the several compelling scenes, including a native man swimming with dolphins, are a sideline to the extremely dull plot which focuses on the find for rare medicinal plant species.It seems that the authors got caught up in the need to develop a dramatic story and forgot the true purpose of an IMAX showcase, eye popping visuals. The futility of the storyline itself is evident when the scientist who travels thousands of miles to explore fresh medicinal species ends up purchasing his fresh miracle cure in a market.Ditch the pointless storyline and the monotonous narration for some more pictures of animals, indigenous people, landscapes and that breathtaking waterfall (which only got about 5 seconds of screentime) and then it would be worthy of an IMAX screen.
