  • This location is shown only to members

THE END OF SUBURBIA, Tues. Jan. 31; MEET IN LOBBY @ JB MEMBERSHIP DESK @ 7pm; Movie Start time is 7:15pm Directed by Gregory Greene, Canada, 2004, Runtime: 78, Rating: PG-13, The Electric Wallpaper Co. “Compelling and deeply disturbing.” (Toronto Star) "Peak Oil”? It’s the scariest term in economics and geology right now, for if its proponents are right, suburbia will be a boom civilization gone bust, sailing into oblivion on the illusion of an endless sea of cheap fossil fuel. A documentary that sounds the alarm about a culture running on empty. Followed by Reel Talk with JBFC Programming Director Brian Ackerman.

    I thought the film was convicting and thought provoking. Although it did inspire a bit of hysteria, the message of the film was quite clear: Americans are too dependent on oil!
    The discussion afterwards was an unexpected and much appreciated surprise for me.

    Hopefully the movie was a wake up call to everyone who saw it that the time of cheap oil is behind us forever -- and that we need to start thinking about how we can better organize our lives in a way that requires with less oil comsumption. Good luck!

    Regarding the meetup afterwards, as usual the discussion was thought-provoking and fun. What more can you ask for?

    I arrived late and didn't know who to catch up with after the movie (as it was my first time with this group). However it was a very interesting and provocative movie and talk that followed. Sorry I missed the discussion after and meeting you all. Maggie

    Congrats on a great turnout. The film was provocative if a little gloomy. It certainly provided plenty of fodder for conversation. Interesting and diverse group.
