What a relief! I can retire as a filmmaker now, and so can all other filmmakers. The best film has now been made, by the French of course: Genesis. Origins of life, origins of the universe, told by an African griot. The directors of Microcosmos and Winged Migration train their crystalline lenses on microscopic rivulets of human and avian blood cells, only swoop above the strikingly-similar deltas of Madagascar. The strike of a match is the origin of the universe; a whisp of smoke becomes the galaxy. But a flippety-floppety mudskipper is the real star. Watch for it in the M-SPIFF Best of Fest.
Would you believe Microcosmos is only now (May 3) coming out on DVD in the U.S.? Nine frigging years? Let's hope Genesis doesn't take that long.
