      Solarmax

      2000 40m Documentary List
      63% Tomatometer 8 Reviews 60% Audience Score 100+ Ratings The sun is the only star that we can study directly but it is so completely ubiquitous, so intrinsic to life and culture, that we are effectively blind to it. It's time for a new look. Just as the telescope made the universe conceivable so new satellite borne instruments are allowing us to look at a sun that we have never seen before. For the first time we really can study a star in full spate as it builds up to its next peak of violence - the solar maximum of the year 2000/2001. Read More Read Less

      Matt Weitz Dallas Morning News A highly entertaining and educational picture of something to which most of us never give a second thought. Rated: A- Sep 30, 2004 Full Review Jae-Ha Kim Jae-Ha Kim As Galileo Galilei once described it, the sun is as spotty as a teenager. And the general audience gets a chance to see the sun in all its magnificence and fury in “Solarmax." Rated: 2/4 Jul 28, 2023 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Aug 16, 2005 Full Review Pablo Villaça Cinema em Cena As imagens so espetaculares, mas o roteiro, mostrando-se excessivamente fascinado com os mitos e religies relacionados ao Sol, abusa da locuo floreada e piegas. Rated: 2/5 Jan 30, 2005 Full Review Herb Lash Big Movie Zone This is the sort of documentary that will leave some shaking their heads in awe and wonder. Jun 17, 2002 Full Review Diane Urbani Deseret News (Salt Lake City) During the 40-minute ride, we gain a new perspective on, and hopefully a fresh appreciation for, the natural world. Rated: 3/4 Sep 21, 2001 Full Review Read all reviews
