Microcosmos

See the world like you've never seen it before, in amazing detail

 

On DVD, this bewitching documentary about the lives of tiny creatures offered terrific detail. But it looks like old episodes of EastEnders next to this gloriously rich Blu-ray.



Stag beetle duels become as dramatic as an Errol Flynn staircase swordfight, while spiders catch crickets in scenes of nerve-shredding horror.



The now slightly dated foley soundtrack lets it down, but otherwise this is epic drama disguised as U-cert natural history. Unique.
