Explore Milford Beeghly's obsessive quest to create hybrid corn in this playful, award winning documentary from filmmaker Monteith McCollum. Convinced that his product could play a pivotal role in ending world hunger, Beeghly began pitching it to skeptical farmers in the 1930s. Twenty years later, he was using television to get out his message, and people were starting to listen.

An acquired taste but worth the effort.

Hybrid is a loving, quirky documentary.

A stunning documentary that itself plays as a hybrid of something dreamed-up by Errol Morris and the Brothers Quay.

The director, Monteith McCollum, has created a living, breathing film, as interesting and moving as any fictional film.

Fascinating if somewhat sluggish documentary.

A highly unusual hayride through the cornfields of old, Hybrid showcases the odd and eccentric relics of a past culled from a family scrapbook filled barnyard cobwebs and the echoes of mislaid affections.

Run, do not walk to a movie about... corn?

Two-thirds in, this American biogothic collapses like stalks under hail.

This dark, brooding fantasia on man and nature is a film that sometimes plods, but it often plows rich soil, in a manner as unique and mysterious as its subjects.

The mere fact that a 90-minute documentary about a corn farmer and his crops can manage to be both occasionally entertaining and thoroughly artistic makes Hybrid worth harvesting, if you're in the right farm -- err, frame -- of mind.
