Review on the EDGE: Big Easy to Big Empty
Check out my review on the latest Hurricane Katrina documentary, Big Easy to Big Empty: The Untold Story of the Drowning of New Orleans.
The public should never grow tired of hearing the tragic stories of Hurricane Katrina. Each person’s story is personal, not just another casualty. Nonetheless, when investigative reporter Greg Palast attempts to tell "untold" stories and conspiracies, the film feels half full, especially if the viewer has seen Spike Lee’s flawless five-part documentary When the Levees Broke. For example, an interview with the LSU Hurricane Center explains the poorly built levees and the lack of a proper evacuation plan. However, these points are less of an untold story and more hardcore clarification that what Kanye West said is true, "George Bush doesn’t care about black people!"
