Movie Info

Everyone knows that the ancient idea of Earth in the center of the universe is a ridiculous holdover from a superstitious age, right? Modern science has proven that we are nothing special! We inhabit, in Carl Sagan's words, " insignificant planet of a humdrum star lost in a galaxy tucked away in some forgotten corner of a universe in which there are far more galaxies than people." Well....prepare to be shocked! (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for The Principle

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (3)

  • "'The Principle' isn't just run-of-the-mill crackpottery but an idiosyncratic constellation of Christian creationism, skepticism of the scientific method, and conspiracy theories involving NASA and astrophysicists all over the world."

  • The best that can be said of this documentary is that it makes enough gestures toward fair and balanced treatment to obscure much of the bad faith lying beneath.

  • A documentary that too often feels manipulatively Machiavellian in its presentation of all those "irrefutable" facts and findings.

  • Groundbreaking, fair and balanced. It's the kind of powerful, intelligent and compelling documentary you'll be talking about for weeks!
