Review: The Great Invisible, 2014, dir. Margaret Brown


“If you heard this quote out of context, you might assume it can be sourced back to a Vietnam vet or 9/11 responder. But you would be wrong, and more than that, you would be shocked; this is the testimony of Doug Brown, chief engineer on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig and one of the survivors of the 2010 explosion that led to the now notorious BP oil spill. Every syllable Brown enunciates sets him on the verge of quivering. Each moment he spends reliving the memory cuts like a lash. It’s a somber moment, a grim moment, and a moment we should all feel privileged to have access to.” – Via Movie Mezzanine
