If you found Dark Waters a good watch & find this subject interesting I would also highly recommend watching the documentary The Devil We Know.

Would it be possible in the future to place a clear pointer/link as to where these films or series are available to watch?

I'm glad you mentioned Chernobyl, Cas. Since seeing Dark Waters I had a feeling there was a missing 'edge' from it I couldn't put my finger on; and Chernobyl had exactly that.
I think it was down to the realism in both cases which gave the Chernobyl the edge but ironically detracted from Dark Waters edge due to the period of time it encompasses and the type of affair it was.. perhaps the Du Pont case being a long drawn out affair would probably have more edge as a TV series?

I enjoyed this but found it a bit sagging and also lacked an overriding urgency, even though it's an ongoing and very real world time sensitive plight for its victims - that by degree, includes us all. To the latter point, you would expect it to have drawn the viewer in much more but it doesn't and instead got bogged down in explanation and convention.
Having seen Ruffalo and the actual lawyer involved on Graham Norton, I was struck again at the lack of outrage from the audience but more of a polite gasp with an oh dear and that's ultimately what this leaves you with.

Thanks Cas, this popped up on my radar when I watched Parasite.

Type of thing I like to watch, never ceases to amaze me what these big corps get up to.

Ruffalo may be the only Marvel actor out of the big four that has a equally successful career not reliant on his connection to a big franchise.

I watched this on Friday with my wife and we both really enjoyed it. Great performance from Mark Ruffalo with strong support from Anne Hathaway and the rest of the cast. Arguably, it was a bit long but I think that was deliberate to try and emphasise the length of time the process actually took.

The attitude of big Corporates never fails to amaze me!

Arguably RDJ has albeit the MCU help resurrect a career which was stalling.
Actually the more ai think on it... Scarlett Johansson, Chris Pratt, Andy Serkis, Josh Brolin, Benedict Cumberbatch... there are quite a few and of course old Nick Fury himself has had a great career outside of MCU

This film was an eye opening, sobering, terrifying and a thoroughly engrossing watch. I’ve already removed all Teflon related products from my kitchen.

I was wondering about that is it just Teflon or are all non stick products using Teflon?

I would agree with this. Started strong and by end kinda just wanted it to be finished with. I did enjoy it but not one I will ever watch again.

Just seen Dark Waters at the cinema.

Well first things first: we're buying new pans.
A very informative film, interesting and indeed scary. Mark Ruffalo played his role well. I was unaware of the situation with Tefal, so more than glad we saw the film. Powerful companies in America like this one: total nightmare and must be run by psychopaths
