Gas Hole is a frightening investigation into big oil – its origins its growth and the role it plays in U.S. society today. In light of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico I was fascinated to find out more about the industry that is polluting our environment while jacking up their prices. And the film is chilling. This is the first co-writing venture of Wagener and Roberts and it is superbly researched and put together with a strong sense of tension and credibility.Gas Hole: a crude conspiracy opens with quotes from U.S. presidents ranging from the 1970s up until Bush all voicing the same concern with oil dependency. And yet today oil prices are higher than ever and the planet is rapidly running out of black gold – so why has nothing been done?
