THE LAST MOUNTAIN
A coal mining corporation and a tiny community vie for the last great mountain in Appalachia in a battle for the future of energy that affects us all.
The Last Mountain is a really upsetting documentary by Bill Haney, in looking at a battle of a mountain in Appalachia, and the evil guys are big coal, especially Massey. This happens in West Virginia, and you’re going to learn a lot about coal that you probably didn’t know. Among other things, that it’s the primary source of electricity in this country, and it’s also the number one pollutant. But this is a great documentary, in that it does offer solutions. It also is a little careless about some medical data, but I would still give it four stars.
