A 70mm Novelty
19 June 2006 | by (Beavercreek, Oregon) – See all my reviews

This is what I selected to do for Father's Day, and I'm sorry to say it was a disappointing choice. Of course, I now want to visit Santorini more than ever, but if you've read Unearthing Atlantis by Charles Pellegrino, be advised that there's nothing new here and what there is (of Santorini) is precious little. There's more to see in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.

As documentaries go, it's travelogue-lite. I can only guess that the producers somehow did not want to burden the audience with too many facts and details. That, or there just isn't much file footage of Prof. Marinatos' work at Thera. Maybe it's the expense of Imax type presentations, and they lacked the budget that someone like James Cameron (a friend of Pellegrino) might allow. I;m not sure, but as the father of two documentary filmmakers, I've enjoyed better Father's Days.
