It's even later than that, says this environmental documentary about the impending demise of the human race on Earth, a likely consequence of the wasteful lifestyles of you-know-who -- that other guy in the theater seat next to you. Filmmakers Nadia Conners and Leila Conners Petersen's doomsday warning lands somewhere between Koyaanisqatsi and An Inconvenient Truth in its laundry list of human-caused ills, and the talking heads are a step above most nonprofit video op-ed pieces -- Mikhail Gorbachev and a former CIA director step up to decry global warming. Warner Independent is distributing this entirely watchable effort, no doubt because of the participation of Leonardo DiCaprio, who co-wrote, coproduced, and narrates.
