The idea of eco-terrorism is one of the most controversial due to risk that it equates activism with al-Qaeda's activities. Zal Batmanglij's movie "The East" looks at this issue, with Brit Marling playing an agent for a private intelligence firm infiltrating an environmental group that forces CEOs of polluting companies to experience the pollution.

People can debate forever whether the group's actions constitute terrorism, and even if their actions are justified whether what they do is the right way to deal with it. The fact remains that the pollution is real and will outlast us all. This is a movie that I recommend to everyone.
