manufactured landscapes

I watched this documentary over the weekend, and I thought it was just about the best thing I'd seen in quite awhile. In the same vein as The End of Suburbia, but not nearly as preachy, it's an artistic look at what western consumerism is doing to the people, communities and the landscape in China. Rent it and watch it with an open mind -- it's quiet and moves slowly, but it's worth every minute.
