A Skeptic No More, 28 February 2003
Author: Matt Bidlack from Michigan

I challenge anyone with a skeptical opinion about crop circle phenomena to watch this film and, afterward, continue to hold onto their pre-film opinions. This film has the capacity to change even the most hardened skeptic's mind about crop circles. I, myself, without ever really researching the topic, had always suspected human involvement in these events. This film very convincingly discounted this theory and presented several other very sensible theories put forth by competent scientists across the full spectrum of scinetific discipline from physics to biochemistry. It inspired me to do further research into the matter to develop a more educated opinion on whether the world's population is handling this phenomena with the necessary amount of respect and openness. I never realized before watching this film that there are so many hundreds of these circles and designs appearing year after year all over the world, and my pre-film assumption (probably a common assumption) that there are only two prevailing theories - humans or aliens - was dead wrong.

The director appeared for a post-film question/answer session at the screening I attended in Ann Arbor on the campus of the University of Michigan. He was very knowledgeable and exhibited professionalism while he explained why he was convinced that only some of the thousands of crop circles are man-made. The audience was largely U 0f M faculty, students, and alumni whose questions were extremely thoughtful and articulate and he responded very intelligently on their level. In fact, one of the biochemists cited (but not interviewed) in the movie as a proponent of one of the alternative theories (the most sensible one, in my opinion) was a top researcher at the U of Michigan. I think a lot of people left that theater with their minds changed about crop circles.

A definite must-see.
