Time Out says

Wed Oct 10 2007

Expanding with an organic sweep, Dunn’s debut eco-doc turns the battle to save a beloved Austin, Texas, swimming hole from ambitious urban developers into an engrossing microcosmic metaphor – first global, then spiritual – for a world eating itself alive in its hunger for growth. Lensed with a lyrical beauty that nods squarely to exec producer Terrence Malick, Dunn’s musings arrive via startling visual symmetries, refocusing gracefully between great (God’s-eye photography, motion graphics) and small (talking heads, glittering underwater footage). Even if the director eventually hard-pedals her pantheist imagery into cliché, this inconvenient truth is discreet, intimate and regularly surprising.

I don't consider myself as an average viewer but the reviews pretty much all hone in on the startling insight of ourselves this film provides. The Unforeseen is to layered to grasp everything in one or two viewings. It's a film that will present you with some new insight each time you view it. A truly extraordinary film. As perfect a film as I have ever seen.
