Fuel.: The World is Addicted to Oil. It's Time for an Intervention. June 22, 2010, Release.
Directed and Starring Josh Tickell
BuzzFlash.com's Review (excerpt)
Given the catastrophe in the Gulf, this film is as timely as it comes. We screened it when it came out in the theaters, and it is an inspiring story of one young man who drove a biodiesel van around the country to educate Americans about alternatives to oil, only to realize that biodiesel fuels have their drawbacks too. Ever the optimist, he comes up with potential alternative fuels that could offer limitless energy.

A wonderful, uplifting and optimistic film about what an agent of change can accomplish. Inspiring!

"IMPRESSIVELY COMPREHENSIVE"..."FUEL" is a vital, superbly assembled documentary that presents an insightful overview of America's troubled relationship with oil and how alternative and sustainable energies can reduce our country's -- and the world's -- addictive dependence on fossil fuels."

- Gary Goldstein, LOS ANGELES TIMES

"THE UNOFFICIAL SEQUEL TO AL GORE'S 'AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH'"...Tickell gets points for intellectual honesty for directly addressing critics who are concerned that increased use of biofuels will impact the global food supply, possibly pricing poor countries out of the market for such staples as corn. He doesn't dismiss the argument but offers some next generation technological solutions, from algae farms in the desert to "vertical farms" in the cities.
- Kerry Lengel, ARIZONA REPUBLIC

"DYNAMIC, STIRRING...A MUST SEE AND NOT JUST FOR ENVIRONMENTALISTS"...We all know about ethanol, solar-and wind-generated power, hybrid engines and the like. But by the end of "Fuel," one might very well come out of the theater ready to invest in companies deriving energy from wood chips and algae, or growing food in vertical, inner-city farms.
- Tm Keogh, SEATTLE TIMES

"DEEPLY PERSONAL AND SURPRISINGLY PERSONABLE"...one of the refreshing traits of this action-nudging documentary is Tickell's willingness to wrestle his own biases. Tickell and writer Johnny O'Hara make a pragmatic case that one solution can't cure our energy woes. With candor, the doc often lets a nagging question cloud hope: Can energy ever be consequence-free?
- Lisa Kennedy, DENVER POST

"Every American who considers themselves a patriot must see this movie. It changes the way you think about America's dependence on oil. It also provides a path for a sustainable future that will not only make a greener planet, but save us all. Where most films of the sort leave you with a sinking feeling in your stomach, "Fuel" leaves you with hope and a sense of empowerment that you can, and will, make a difference. Own this film and share it with everyone you know."
