    In my opinion every American should make it their business to go and see this excellent doc**entary. The director Werner Boote made the movie easy to understand, entertaining and relateable. The subject of plastic is personal to Werner Boote, because his grandfather was plastics manufacturing executive and praised the virtues of plastic to his grandson. However, Werner learned how dangerous to health and environment plastic is. During this film Werner travels to many different locations and exposes the dangers of plastic and how the world became so dependable on it. Werner Boote interviews plastic industry executives, biologists and many other experts, and they all agree that plastic is no good. Werner is a very nice guy and it is very enjoyable to watch him interview people. The movie has a lot of information and it is very fast-paced, therefore it does become a little bit wearisome. Besides that, I recommend seeing this film because it is educational and enlightening.

    Plastic Planet is a doc**entary written and directed by Werner Boote. This doc**entary dives into the world of plastic and the effect on the human race. It touches all aspects of the world of plastic including industrial, global, environmental and more. The movie was excellent. It was very much able to illustrate the affect this cheap and easy to make material has on our planet and the human race. Plastic is great for so many reasons including being easy to produce, extremely inexpensive, and unbelievably useful. At the same time, the effects of plastic are devastating. The doc**entary showed how long plastic stays on the earth and how the chemicals released by plastic eventually make their way into the human blood stream. I have a couple criticisms about the film including it tries to cover way too much. The director tries to cover the entire world of plastic in one film, and unfortunately that is just not possible. The film jumps from one scene to another, one location to another, one topic to another and sacrifices depth for for breadth. In the end I still really enjoyed this doc**entary and would suggest everyone see it.

    Plastic Planet is a doc**entary directed by Werner Boote and starring Werner Boote, Theo Colborn, Fred Vom Saal, Margot Wallstrom,Felice Casson. This is an excellent doc**entary about how plastic is causing health problems all over the world and how bad it is for the environment. I could tell that Werner Boote examined and researched this topic very well and also was able to transcend the message to the larger masses. Werner Boote himself is a very likable and it is pleasant to watch him traveling around Europe, China and the United States and showing how the world became so dependable on such a harmful material as plastic. It definitely made me think how much plastic i use in my everyday life. I work in a restaurant and the amount of plastic they use is ridiculous. I definitely recommend seeing this film for your own sake. It might help you reconsider the amount of plastic you use.
