I just got an email from Al Gore’s website recommending it:
As you know, the Earth is moving closer to several negative “tipping points” that could — within as little as 10 years — make it virtually impossible for us to avoid irretrievable damage to the planet’s habitability for human civilization. That is one of the reasons why it is urgent we take action as soon as possible.
My friend Leonardo DiCaprio has just produced an amazing documentary on this subject. The film was created using over 150 hours of interviews with some of the brightest minds on the planet, including physicist Stephen Hawking and Nobel Prize winner Wangari Maathai. Moreover, Leo himself is very eloquent and persuasive in this movie. I recommend it highly. […]
I had not even heard of this one before now. Anyone out there seen it yet? Is it worth the time? It’s apparently now playing at the River Oaks Theatre in Houston.

The “eleventh hour” is the last moment when change is possible. Exploring how we’ve arrived at this moment in time—how we live, how we impact the earth’s ecosystems, and what we can do to change our course—this documentary features experts from all over the world, including former Soviet Prime Minister Mikhail Gorbachev; renowned scientist Stephen Hawking; former head of the CIA R. James Woolsey; sustainable design experts William McDonough and Bruce Mau; and over 50 leading scientists, thinkers and leaders who discuss the most important issues that face our planet and people. Narrated and co-written by Leonardo DiCaprio. Directed and co-written by Leila Conners Petersen and Nadia Conners.
Here are a couple of reviews I found:
- ENN Review: Leonardo DiCaprio’s “The 11th Hour”
- The 11th Hour – Leonardo DiCaprio – Documentary Review
Apparently, this is more about solutions than just doom and gloom.
