Editorial Reviews

From the Contributor

"Of the 100-180 or so formations that have appeared in southern England every summer for the past 12 years, it is highly doubtful that more than a few were surreptitiously and secretly manmade - the facts don't add up for anything more than a handful of convincing fakes in any given year. That leaves a huge, unexplained and authentic phenomenon. My assertion, which is absolutely 100% certain and unabashed, is that in fact there are hundreds if not thousands of authentic Crop Circles that have appeared in the past somewhere in the world. They are real!" --William Gazecki, Director of Crop Circles: Quest For Truth

5.0 out of 5 stars An intelligent and probing film December 16, 2005
Format:DVD
Complex geometric linear and circular patterns in which vegetation is squeezed flat against the ground have appeared overnight in wheat and cornfields in 70 countries worldwide over the last 25 years. These designs, generically referred to as crop circles, seem to be created out of nothing and originate from nowhere. They are exquisite works of art but who is the artist? In his documentary, Crop Circles: Quest for Truth, Oscar nominee William Gazecki (WACO, The Rules of Engagement) interviews researchers, scientists, philosophers, and laymen in an attempt to unravel the mystery of their origin and nature. Gazecki does not approach his subject from a journalistic framework, presenting pros and cons in a conventional matter, but as a filmmaker who is telling a story with astounding implications. There are no easy answers. The formations reflect a Sacred Geometry incorporating the Phi or Golden ratio that exists in ancient architecture and art and throughout terrestrial biology including human body structure. As one researcher states, "there is a force or energy at work that is governed by principles that are beyond the capacity of human beings".

Crop Circles: Quest for Truth begins with archival footage of single circles from the 1980s, and then continues through the next decade, showing the deepening intricacy of the pictograms. The patterns have now evolved to the point where in August 2001 a formation appeared at Milk Hill, Wiltshire containing 409 circles making up a wheel design that is larger than two football fields. The film displays the largest collection of crop formations ever seen on screen and includes footage of strange balls of light hovering above the ground in areas where crop circles later appear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent July 11, 2003
By Eolake
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I warmly recommend this DVD for anybody who wants to know more about crop circles. It is a thorough and cool-headed overview of the various aspects of this amazing phenomenon, and it also contains many beautiful shots of many of the most striking crop circles of recent years.
Don't miss the DVD Extras! Some of the best material is in there, including much evidence of a big orchestrated campaign to discredit the phenomenon of crop circles as a mere hoax in the public eye.
Film maker William Gazecki does a fantastic job, and I am looking forward to whatever he does next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Documentary on Crop Circles November 27, 2005
Format:DVD
"We're being forced to consider that this universe has all kinds of intelligences all around us that we've been ignoring...mysterious other intelligences." - From the DVD

Director William Gazecki highlights the science and art of crop circles in his 120 minute DVD Crop Circles: Quest for Truth. This levelheaded DVD interviews crop circle expert Colin Andrews as well as scientists and crop circle enthusiasts.

Before 1990, crop circles were simple and scattered. However, as time went on, they became increasingly complex in the form of insectograms, fractals, and other geometric patterns. In fact, at the crux of sacred geometry and crop circles is the Golden Mean, which is a ratio of "small to the large is large to the whole".

Interviewees relate fascinating stories of crop circle sightings, including seeing infamous glowing balls that often float around the circles. For example, Andrews relays a story about flying over Stonehenge, photographing the stones, then going back to refuel the plane. On his way back-a mere 25 minutes later-there was a spiral crop circle amidst Stonehenge...in broad daylight!

There's a liberal amount of science in the Crop Circles: Quest for Truth DVD. For example, scientists discuss how seeds from crop circle plants grow differently than the control group. According to one scientist, there had to be some kind of strong energy-perhaps microwave-pulse or plasma energy--to turn parts of full-grown corn into "exploded nodes".

One fascinating account told of 109 circles made one rainy night-with nary a broken plant, footprint, or trail!

While hoaxsters make some crop circles, the question that many have is at 200+ crop circles every year, what is the payoff?

5.0 out of 5 stars A real documentary! Not fluff. July 6, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Finally a professionally produced documentary about crop circles and the people that research them.
Informative, entertaining, well worth the price of admission.
A fascinating look at the history of crop circles and the varied people that research them. This DVD I will share with all my friends - believers and non-believers.
Make sure to view the photo collection in the "Bonus" section.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best I've seen yet February 28, 2005
Format:DVD
Highly recommend this DVD to those new to the Crop Circle phenomenon. If you think two old guys can make circles round the world year-in-year out then this may not be for you.

There was a lot of great info and interviews on circles, how circles can be diferentiated from hoax circles.

The extras on the DVD were even more intresting.

Stop reading the review, buy it already and see for yourself!

4.0 out of 5 stars more convincing than expected July 14, 2003
Format:DVD
i watched this film planning to get a good laugh out of a doc. about crop cirlces. after about 30 minutes i was totally convinced. gazecki gives facts, footage, and interviews that seemed compelling and honest. anyone who enjoys this kind of thing will not be let down. not the normal 'aliens communicating with us' type stuff either. gazecki lets the people who have spent their life studying crop circles tell the story. the film work of the formations themselves are amazing. lots of eye-candy. the only negative in my opinion is the lack of counter-point. we are only shown the side of the believer. all in all, worth the viewing. entertaining doc. is hard to find
