Winged Migration

Jean rented Winged Migration yesterday. It's a really cool sorta-documentary nature film following the migratory flights of many species of birds. The photography is spectacular. Most of the movie is just the images with music overlaid. It's slow, contemplative, almost hypnotic.

Tonight we watched the included 'making of' feature. This was like seeing a second entire cool movie. The lengths they went to to create their movie were fantastic. I kept wondering where the hell they found all the money it must have taken to do the stuff they did, for four years!

Verdict: rent it, watch the movie one night, then the 'making of' feature the following night. Even Kelly gave it two thumbs up ("awww, look at the cute little duckies!").
