I'm unsure as to how to review a documentary style 'movie'. what makes a documentary good? i am not sure. i will just review some of the aspects.
Scientific accuracy: i was very pleased with this. i think i found only a few rather debatable scientific statements.
pictures: the best thing about this movie. it was stunning. also the commentary was really well adjusted to the current scene.
commentary: sticking to the facts, not being preachy, just like i want it.
i think that's all of what i want from a documentary. it kept me concentrated and gave me something interesting to think about while letting me admire nature's beauty (but also letting me ponder over man's achievements seen from this angle). yes, i want more of it. nicely done.
