Lost Rivers -- the review

I got reviewer access to this movie, which discusses the "lost rivers" (or their remnants) in Montreal, Toronto, Seoul, London, Yonkers and Brescia.

The 70-minute documentary was interesting, in terms of pointing out how people see (or overlook) these rivers, how their disappearance -- and reappearance -- affects life in the city, and the difficulty in restring rivers that have been covered over with shopping, parking, and so on.

The movie was a little "slow" because the narrator had a "dead" voice, and there was no pacing -- or thrust -- to the firm.

Bottom Line: I give Lost Rivers THREE STARS for discussing the flowing water dimension to urban life.
