“Doomsday Film Festival”

1:30 at 92YTribeca

“A deliciously hyperbolic insect study that marries beautiful microphotography with a Herzogian view of nature as a deceptively idyllic stage that sings with the relentless harmony of murder… To a large degree, Hellstrom is a camp relic of the ’70s, a documentary that’s so committed to blowing up the format that it makes its own conclusions seem laughable. And yet, taken in the right spirit, it’s a wondrously entertaining, hypnotic demonstration of an inarguable point: Insects were around millions of years before mankind came into being, and they’ll be around millions of years after we’re gone.”
Scott Tobias, The Onion A.V. Club
