Killing the Electric Car: A Moving Violation

WKtEC? Writer/Director Chris Paine talks about how he, a list of celebs and others got choked up over the mysterious death of the environmentally-friendly electric car

Forget the record-breaking weekend for Dead Man's Chest. This summer's big film story is the wave of eco-conscious documentaries.

First came An Inconvenient Truth, Al Gore's informative lecture on global warming, which recently expanded its run to suburban theatres. And now comes Chris Paine's electrifying doc about the birth (and mysterious death) of the clean car.

Coincidentally, both films premiered at last year's Sundance and have been released within a few weeks of each other.
