The disturbing eco-documentary "The Last Mountain" charts the catastrophic effects of the mining technique called mountaintop removal on West Virginia's Coal River Valley. That's a refreshingly blunt term: It means that the mining company obliterates the top of a mountain with dynamite to scrape out the coal beneath. The problem is that there are people living nearby.
Poisoned water, massive sludge dumps, floods, tumor clusters and other horrors are cited, and fingers are pointed squarely at Massey Energy, the state's largest coal company.
