Critic Reviews

“I watched this about a year and a half ago, and I liked it. But I recently re-watched it, after having gone through all the changes our family has gone through since watching it the first time: eliminating many toxic products; reading Marie Kondo’s The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up; getting away from plastic products; reducing our household waste; etc. We got rid of stuff and had a big yard sale. We’ve been constantly reducing our material possessions, little by little because it’s a process. So this time I viewed it with a new perspective! And I was even more impressed by it. In the first few minutes, it featured video footage of the same Black Friday videos I had watched when I wrote my post on the consumer day of insanity! I was captured by the documentary for a second time.” – Marie. Because Turtles Eat Plastic Bags. Film Review: Minimalism a Documentary. 4 January 2019
