Al Gore finds life after the politically crushing embarrassment that was his tenure as vice president and, frankly, it's unlikely he will experience another point as high as his achievement in this profound, engaging and, mercifully, clear documentary on the consequences of our complacent greed. That ĎAn Inconvenient Truth' provides little in the way of true revelations pertaining to the earth's (humanity's) looming ecological demise, and ignores some of the more profound problems of trapped car find out more...

10 spacecraft and 24 men (10 appear on camera in this documentary) have orbited, looped around or landed on the moon. As American heroes and members of the super elite most of these men have since shunned public interview. "In the Shadow of the Moon" is a rare and beautiful historical document of the combined Apollo missions, told by the astronauts themselves, with mind blowing NASA footage of the spacecraft, space, the lunar landscape and the view of planet Earth from outer space.

Werner Herzog returns with his trademark dry wit to tell us all about the wonders and pitfalls of the technological world we live in.
