Sort of like that huge diorama at Disneyland
1 April 2000 | by See all my reviews

A hypnotically beautiful film! Unlike the usual Disney documentaries this has no narration; nature just moves along to the Grand Canyon Suite. It has several amazing scenes like watching the wind whip the clouds over and through the mountains or the one where you can almost feel yourself floating along the river as the camera lens gets soaked. I just wish I can someday see it in the letterboxed format. **** out of ****
