Fireball: Visitors From Darker Worlds

Director: Werner Herzog and Clive Oppenheimer
Year Released: 2020
Rating: 3.0

Herzog and Dr. Oppenheimer travel around this beautiful atrocity we call Earth examining places in which meteors/comets have collided - as well as observatories in Hawaii and at the Vatican Observatory - and go over how these objects have influenced and shaped history (especially the Ensisheim meteorite in Alsace and, to a significantly larger degree, the Chicxulub impactor in Mexico).  What's so special about Herzog is how, even at 78 years old, has the curiosity of a toddler fresh out of the womb and is able to track down and interview some of the most eccentric people around (birds of a feather, etc.), like the Norwegian jazz musician who collects and studies micrometeorites and Brother Guy Consolmagno, who is considered "The Pope's Astronomer."  I like that it ends with a hopeful note on how you can have both faith and science, something some people (cough, Dawkins and Harris, cough) balk at: after all, we're just made of stardust anyway.
