A stunning cinematic picture book and worthy if somewhat overreaching lecture on the imperiled state of Mother Earth.

It makes for a film that is beautiful to watch and interesting to think about if taken with the right grain of salt.

The further the documentary progresses, the more enlightenment is strangled by hand-wringing.

The only standout is cinematographer Christopher Ferstad's beautiful shots, which would elevate any other documentary to a thing of beauty.

Their calm, measured words, the Human Suits' tranquil score, and the film's steady, even pace almost promote a meditative state -- fitting, perhaps, for receiving Planetary's message.

Its message is repetitive without being enlightening, and the film and its participants insist on hitting the same beats without pause, until the concept loses all meaning.
