Crop circles are amazing things. They come in all shapes and sizes, and range from the seemingly simple, to the staggeringly complex. They appear in every corner of the globe, and can materialize overnight, or in a matter of minutes. They create a sense of wonder, amazement, and skepticism in all who see them. And no matter whom, or what creates them, no one can deny their exquisite beauty. But with all the publicity they have generated lately, especially with the release of M. Night Shyamalan's Signs, no one has definitively uncovered the mystery behind the origin of these remarkable crop circles.
There are many theories circulating as to the true origin of crop circles, and William Gazecki's intriguing Crop Circles: Quest for Truth, attempts to explain all of them. From natural occurrences, to geological changes, to chemical imbalances, to hoaxes, to extraterrestrials, and even higher levels of consciousness, you get to see it all on this DVD. And with a run time of two hours, a lot of screen time is dedicated to "experts" and normal folk like you and me, offering their personal accounts and explanations of these baffling crop field designs. But what stands out most in this wonderfully directed documentary are not the explanations, but the crop circles themselves, in what has to be the largest assembly of crop circle photographs and videos ever brought to the screen. Coupled with award-winning composer David Hamilton's mysteriously appropriate score, Crop Circles: Quest for Truth is a wonderfully absorbing documentary.
Crop circles have always fascinated me, and their rise in occurrence and ever growing complexity continues to draw me into this captivating subject. Crop Circles: Quest for Truth is extremely informative and enjoyable for anyone interested in learning more about crop circles. With its unmistakable X-Files-like feel, this DVD offers every scientific, psychological, and just plain kooky idea out there attempting to explain what causes crop circles and what their significance is. After watching this DVD you will be savvy to almost every conceivable hypothesis explaining crop circles, yet strangely you'll be even less sure as to what you truly believe. Crop Circles: Quest for Truth does its job admirably in exposing the general public to the beautiful yet unexplained phenomena that invade our fields by the hundreds every year. It is artistic, haunting, visually mesmerizing, and if you're interested in the subject matter, worthy of your collection.
