Crackpot science never looked or sounded so good
11 April 2007 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

The Secret Life of Plants is a long, rambling documentary built around New Age pseudoscience - seeds communicating with distant stars, laughably dubious "experiments" such as a telepathic cabbage identifying the "murderer" who mutilated a fellow vegetable, etc.

But if you can get past the crackpot stuff, it's an audio-visual treat. Spectacular cloud forests, stunning macro and time-lapse photography, and an astounding original soundtrack by Stevie Wonder.

The soundtrack stands on its own, and is available on CD; the movie remains unavailable on DVD or VHS, but turns up occasionally in art house theatres.
