Kicking off a weekend of automobile-themed movies, Who Killed the Electric Car? is a 2006 documentary about the career of the electric car. Narrated by Martin Sheen (The West Wing), the documentary looks into the creation, commercialization, and subsequent downfall of the electric car in the 1990s while researching the roles that the oil industry, government, and car manufacturers played in that process. Fun fact: The film’s sequel, Revenge of the Electric Car, premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival on Earth Day this year.
