The Greatest Places
Travelers spend billions of dollars every year to escape the doldrums of the rat race and seek out safe adventure in exotic locales. But there are some places that are either too costly or too dangerous for the average tourist to tread. Thankfully there are scientists and others dedicated to the study of such exotic places and the telling of what they have seen and found. The Greatest Places is a document of such places by such people. Director Mal Wolfe, with the support of several municipal science organizations, has compiled images and commentary of seven of the world's most exotic places. With narration from actor Avery Brooks, the viewer is whisked away to the Amazon Basin, Tibet, Iguaza Falls, the frosty planes of Greenland, the Kalahari Desert, and the remote island of Madagascar. Before Slingshot Entertainment converted this film to DVD and VHS it was only seen on the IMAX screens. Though this video may not compare to actually being in a canoe on the Amazon, with the special attention to the uniqueness of each location and the innovative first person style in which this film is shot, you are given the next best thing. The DVD format also gives you the opportunity to investigate these places in more depth with an included link to the Internet and various menu features that compliment the movie. ~ Ed Atkinson, Rovi
