Collapse Lands on Ebert’s List of the Ten Best Documentaries of 2009
You may recall Roger Ebert’s review of the documentary Collapse (inspired by Michael C. Ruppert’s book, now published by Chelsea Green as Confronting Collapse: The Crisis of Energy and Money in a Post Peak Oil World). The film earned Ebert’s coveted 4-star rating and lavish praise for its gripping intensity and power.
Now, Chris Smith’s film has landed on Roger Ebert’s list of the Ten Best Documentaries of 2009.

I agree – I got a lot of good insights from Ruppert’s info (Thanks Jeff!!) and have been singing the praises of “Collapse” since.

Here’s my review: Ruppert is a genius and this type of carnal knowledge torments him – and once you know the country you live in- it could torment you too.  He’s deeply connected to his intuition and makes leaps of faith which connects dots where one never knew connections lie. He elequently describes his interpetation of what the future will eventually, inevidably bring. Live blindly and close your eyes to the bear in the woods and it will be over for you quickly. Open your eyes to learn the truth and begin your journey to safe haven – whatever that may be. The information he describes is available other places, but not so humanly revealing.  Enjoy the movie – I give it 4 of 5 Stars.    Playing the End Game -End Game Player

If you look online there’s several video lectures up by Ruppert that go into more detail than the movie did; that was basically just an overview and doesn’t give the sense of prediction that his earlier work does.  Warning: Ruppert wrote the original and best 9-11 Inside Job book in “Crossing the Rubicon”.   If you can manage it, read the book; it’s well over 700 pages as I remember and fully documented. All those who have a predisposition to debunking that particular conspiracy theory might want to keep their distance. He was on the NYT Best Seller list for a very long time and yet was never reviewed by any large publications. No one would touch it, it’s too well documented. They just, as usual, attack his character or make up stuff if that fails..

If you take the work of Richard Heinberg (Power Down, The Party’s Over, etc.), put it together with James Howard Kunstler’s The Long Emergency and Ruppert’s work, you’ll get a wonderful overview from 3 different personalities with very different ‘connect the dots’ skills.  Obviously, CM has a lot to offer in that way too.  Interestingly, although everyone knew about peak oil, no one that I know of put together the high price of oil 2 years ago with the housing bubble and saw that one coming in quite the way it played out with the market crash.

If you want to go over to LATOC (Life After the Oil Crash); it’s a doomer category 5 board but quite fascinating. Plenty of information about preps, breaking news, etc.  One interesting observation of late; someone was obsessing about ‘when they would know when the excrement has hit the fan…?”  The very cogent response was, NOW.  It’s just too slow to see happening except in hindsight.  Basically, the world economy crashed as of last March.  It’s running on fumes now with the addition of fed printing to keep the TBTF’s happy. That’s the money that propped up the stock market all last summer. One wonders what they have planned for an encore if more bubbles pop.

About 60 minutes in…
The emotional “crying scene” was great, right after he talks about needing family and community to survive.

Then he talks about how failures in leadership have made him so angry.

I think we can all relate to some parts of that – and it makes a real emotional connection with the viewer.
I am glad that they left it in.

(From his Blog):
See “The Road”

Viggo Mortenson deserves the statue. Dues are well paid. And I’ve been a fan of Guy Pearce’s since “L.A. Confidential”. “The Road” is the world I have been seeing for many years now. It is what drove me. And the film revealed for me what I have known intuitively, yet never articulated; in words that could fit into a song. “We have to be that good before things get that bad.”

And the sooner we get that good, the less bad things have to get.

    Re: Collapse-A Documentary- Mike Ruppert

Research into peak oil and the 9/11 bullsh– lead me to Ruppert in 2003. 

He has paid a huge price physically, emotionally and spiritually for his insight and research.  It saddened me greatly to see the extent to which Ruppert has visibly aged many years in the last few.

Buy and watch his movies, read his books and read his blog.  http://www.mikeruppert.blogspot.com/

It will help you understand the world…

    Be Quick And Watch It Now!!!

Hello Everyone,

I found an excellent copy of this film for download on Torrent a few weeks ago. However, I’ve found the film downloaded by a nice user 😉 at You Tube. Watch this really quickly, because I have no idea whether it’ll be taken down by You Tube for one reason or another …

Best,

Paul
