(a film review by Mark R. Leeper)

FIREBALL--VISITORS FROM DARKER WORLDS: Co-directed by Werner Herzog and Clive Oppenheimer, this documentary about meteors covers a surprising breadth of discussion about the topic, from science to tribal mysticism. The film meanders quite a bit, and while Herzog displays a broad scientific knowledge, his voice is at times a little wearing. (Since this review is written primarily for a science fiction audience, I will mention that well-known science fiction fan (and Director of the Vatican Observatory) Brother Guy Consolmagno is interviewed in it (at about the one-hour point). Rating: +1 (-4 to +4)
