  • It is important to remind people - again and again and again - that we can't continue to treat the planet like this.

  • The plate of vegetables that it sounds like, but its cinematography and passion for our planet make a strong case for your attention.

  • To say that there are no easy answers to planetary woes is to state the obvious. But the film seeks to reveal rather than lecture, in the hope that our eyes will convince our brains to act before it's too late.

  • We have entered an epoch in which human activity is shaping the planet more than any natural force. Anthropocene bears witness that something's got to give.

  • It's a useful update and a strong reminder of the global nature of a problem that cannot be isolated by borders.

  • The [team's] latest film is the culmination of a major body of work and it's as visually stunning and intellectually invigorating as the previous two films are.
