11. Mysteries of the Unseen World
Site Score: 1, IMDb Score 1; Overall Score: 2 points
Directed by Louie Schwartzberg
We are surrounded by things and events that are too small, too slow, or too fast for our senses to register them. Still, they play an important part in both our lives and in the life of the planet. The microscopic world is finally revealed to us in National Geographic’s Mysteries of the Unseen World. After watching this movie, you will never see things the same, although some would argue that it isn’t necessarily a good thing. Some things (a close up of a flea comes to mind) can’t be unseen. The use of high-definition and high-speed cameras provides for some stunning visual treats.
