Default Review: 2012: Time for Change



The documentary 2012: Time for Change chronicles a theory New Age reporter and author Daniel Pinchbeck has, in that when the doomed date of December 21, 2012 arrives, it won't be the end of existence, but rather, a time for the world to transform itself into a more self-sufficient and prosperous society, with whatever limited natural and artificial resources we may have. If we're running out of water or oil, many of the supposed experts (including Sting and actress Ellen Page), suggest we find a substitute for the deficiencies. While many of the 'experts' seem to be all talk, and perhaps to the point deluded enough to believe that their ideas can work for the approximately seven billion people on the planet, it seems a bit far-fetched.

The film itself starts with stories and history behind why December 2012 is supposedly the end of the world, with references to the infamous Mayan calendar that states something huge and drastic (though whether it's positive or negative is well beyond their knowledge) will come in two years' time. After the history lesson and theorising, Pinchbeck talks to his experts, some of whom are scientists who argue that there is a means by which the earth can survive despite the disaster no one knows the details of that is yet to come.

There is a huge theme of relying on nature in a new age, hippie-sort of aspect, which can render a viewer very sceptical, because a whole lot of long-winded talking about how to save the world and nature isn't as much as going out and doing it. Neither is digging up goat manure as a way to show you're not a celebrity, Ellen Page.

2012: Time for Change does bring about a bit of positivity about a subject everyone dreads speaking about, or believes the worst will come from it. If you need a bit of blind hope, and some optimism on what may or may not be 'the end of the world,' this documentary is for you.

2012: Time for Change is playing in select theatres around the country.
