Movies that Seem to Matter...

Radiant City.

Just watched this well-produced documentary last night (if you are local, then its available in the Jones School of Law library as part of our growing smart growth resource collection). The focus is on why and how sprawl growth happened and whether it will be salvageable.

It's less technical than some others like Crude Awakening or End of Suburbia, but is very entertaining and funny in some places (try and guess whether the main characters are actors or real people).

It's also available on NetFlix and Amazon.

All in all, The Radiant City is a movie that really seems to matter.
