"This is the most amazing website I have ever seen and interacted with. It is beautiful, creative, with beautiful music telling the most harrowing of facts. There is a movie to be aired soon. I hope I get to see it. Living in Michigan I realize how much my life is intertwined with the Great Lakes, but this Canadian made site and movie shows how EVERYONE will be affected. Check it out people! "From Stumbleupoun.com Sept06.09
"So far the best website I've seen on the net (I've been using the internet for roughly 10 years), not just for presentation, but content too. The emotional music gets the message across very strongly. Very important subject. Excellent."
- "Water, the experts say, covers about 2/3 of the Earth's surface. Drinking water, of course, occupies far less than that and a good portion of this is divided between town supplied and bottled drinking water."
~Rick Groen, The Globe and Mail
"As spoken by scientists, fishermen, residents and narrator Gord Downie, the film's revelations are plenty disturbing. Yet with its gorgeous imagery and ethereal soundtrack, Waterlife also emphasizes the beauty of what's at risk."
~Jason Anderson, The Toronto Star
"One of the most stunning films about the environmental crisis I’ve ever seen...not only does it contain important information presented in a way that we haven’t seen before but it is a beautiful cinematic experience."
~Agnes Varnum, doc it out
"There are a lot of environmentally themed documentaries floating around out there, but rarely do they present themselves on such a cinematically engaging level as Kevin McMahon’s Waterlife. McMahon manages to balance his information with engaging storytelling... Overall, Waterlife was probably the best experience I had at this years Hot Docs festival."
~Jay Cheel, The Documentary Blog
"Amongst all of the beautifully shot and entirely absorbing sequences of water life there is an overwhelming sense of impending mortality, with the film acting as an elegy to not only the lakes but also life as we know it."
