RACING EXTINCTION REVIEWED

“Racing Extinction” is a covert attempt to shoot a documentary about at-risk species. Targeting elephants, sea life and tigers…we see how human corporate encroachment is killing off species. What’s weird about this documentary vs. Psihoyos’ earlier work is how tame this feels. While there is a bit of anger in the approach, we don’t get the direct confrontation that seemed to power “The Cove”. I guess that was due to Discovery’s involvement?

The premise of the documentary is that in a century, half of all animal species will be gone. There’s a push to show how we’re killing off these animals with little follow through to connect patterns to actual death. It might sound like I’m downplaying the documentary, it’s just that I’m taken aback. For a feature documentary, the TV leanings play incredibly hard into the mix. Plus, that New Age style music sampling is really distracting. “Racing Extinction” is a documentary that needs to be seen, but check out “The Cove” first.
