Solid reporting ties together battles over seemingly unconnected perils like cigarettes and flame-retardant chemicals. Snazzy graphics and music—and appealing interview subjects—move things along, and a kick-in-the-gut plot twist suggests how climate change actually benefited oil companies.

Merchants Of Doubt (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack): iTunes
Lakeshore Records has released Merchants Of Doubt (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) — available now digitally on iTunes. Featuring music by Mark Adler, Daniel Schweiger of Film Music Magazine says “The result shows the power of documentary scoring to have all of the belief-changing impact of dramatized ‘fiction’ film music, with ‘Merchant’s’ musical impact showing just how well Adler is versed in both cinematic worlds.” Directed by Robert Kenner, the film is out now in select theaters in New York and Los Angeles, with more cities on the way (check show times).

Kenner’s film exposes a devoted and long-lived cadre of scientists (and their philosophical descendants) who established their careers during the A-bomb era and the Cold War’s Big Science rivalries. Anti-communist ideologues, well-trained and often brilliant scientists such as physicists S. Fred Singer and the late Frederick Seitz saw (and see) corporate regulation as a pathway to socialism, an endgame more fearsome than any secondhand smoke or patchy ozone. [NewsWeek]
