Evan Schafer's rating of the film No Impact Man: The Documentary

I can appreciate the effort made by the Beavan family in the documentation of their year-long adventure to live with no impact to their surrounding environment. However, some of the extremes are to be argued with, such as lack of electricity for six months. I felt, if nothing else, the effect of this film existed in the awe at how these three people were able to sustain themselves in a world fraught with consumerism.
