Watch: Watermark 2013 123movies, Full Movie Online – Vignettes demonstrating humankind’s relationship to water are presented. Many of the vignettes portray water as a commodity, as integral part and parcel of the goings-on and/or as an input into the proceedings, often where its use affects its future use in another means. A few vignettes portray water in its cultural importance. Tying these vignettes together is a general presentation of the affect of climate change on how water can no longer be used as it once was, and how it will affect future use. Also tying them together is Edward Burtynsky putting together an equivalent book on the issue..
Plot: Following their triumph with Manufactured Landscapes, photographer Edward Burtynsky and filmmaker Jennifer Baichwal reunite to explore the ways in which humanity has shaped, manipulated and depleted one of its most vital and compromised resources: water.

Nothing Lasts Forever.
Watermark’s opening minutes is a long drawn out shot of gates opening releasing huge amounts of water. We then cut to what feels like 5 minutes, to nothing. A dried up river. What a memorable way to open a film.
This is one of the best looking movies I have seen in a long time and it shows. But, that is the main problem I have with it. It is so beautifully shot, that it is overlooks its message. We are so busy looking at the most amazing scenery that we forget what the movie is really about which the people being interviewed for such a short time remind us.
The movie’s main message is what one of the people say: Nothing lasts forever. They talk about how we are all water, how every species drinks water, how water is used to help make things, but the thing is we do know about some of this already. But, the things we don’t know are at the most amusing.
I have nothing else to say about this movie and I am sorry. But all it is, is it’s eye candy. Nothing more, nothing less. Overlooking its message. The reason I rated it 7 is because there were so many memorable shots in the movie that I loved. But for the rest, it tries to get its point across, but rarely does.
