"Who Killed the Electric Car?"

Hopefully this movie will catch as much attention as Gore's with less of the political ranting against it: Who Killed the Electric Car? The problem with Gore's movie is, of course, that by featuring himself so prominently in the narrative role the movie has necessarily become a target for political windbags to carp on. Gore should have stayed behind the scenes.

Sadly, I will be unable to see Who Killed the Electric Car in good old car-obsessed Utah. Oh well. I'll just drive down to the WalMart and get myself some cheap crap at low low prices.

Fuck that shit.

Update: I just wrote the following to Tori Baker of the Salt Lake Film Society (they run the Tower and the Broadway theaters in SLC.)
Hi,

I wonder if there is anyway of bringing Who Killed the Electric Car to SLC? (http://www.sonyclassics.com/whokilledtheelectriccar/) The movie was featured on NPR's Science Friday yesterday. Sadly I noted that it is not playing anywhere in Utah.

Keep up the great work. I really enjoy going to the Broadway and the Tower.

I encourage you to write to the SL Film Society too if you are at all interested in seeing the movie play in Utah. Here is Tori's email address: tori_baker@saltlakefilmsociety.org

Update 2 (3 July 2006):

Good news, sort of....
[Theorris],
Keep an eye on our website and e-mails we're trying to get this film, but I'm not sure if Sony is going to sell it to us.
Best,
Tori

    One upsetting thing about living in Austin is that they insist on playing music all day on npr instead of airing shows like science friday.
