“Louie Schwartzberg’s lightly informative, delightfully kooky documentary, “Fantastic Fungi,” offers nothing less than a model for planetary survival.”

~ Jeannette Catsoulis,

The New York Times

“Gorgeous photography! Time-lapse sequences of mushrooms blossoming forth could pass for studies of exotic flowers growing on another planet.”

~ Joe Morgenstern,

The Wall Street Journal

“Schwartzberg’s film quickly proves to be one of the year’s most mind-blowing, soul-cleansing and yes, immensely entertaining triumphs.”

~ Matt Fagerholm,

RogerEbert.com

“a must see for anyone interested in life, death and the pursuit of the planet’s well-being.”

~ David Carpenter,

Forbes

“As researchers describe the workings of vast underground networks of mycelium, the filmmakers offer CG that is just as polished as the time-lapse, and more colorful. It’s spookily beautiful, even, especially when envisioning what lies unseen beneath old-growth forests.”

~ John Defore,

The Hollywood Reporter

“Mushrooms are the new superheroes, as Brie Larson dreamily narrates over what is not a new Marvel epic but rather a documentary of epic proportions”

~ Robert Abele,

The Los Angeles Times

“fascinating, informative, educational and totally entertaining”

~ Rex Reed,

The Observer

“Captain Marvel ain’t got nothing on fungi”

~ Christopher Llewellyn Reed,

Hammer to Nail

“Fantastic Fungi is a film that is rife with hope and joy.”

~ Michael Frank,

Cinema Sentries

“If you’ve never thought much about fungi before, prepare to be amazed. You’ll be awed by Schwartzberg’s remarkable time-lapse images. His passion for fungi is written into every fibre of the film and it’s infectious.”

~ Jennie Kermode,

Eye For Film

“Fantastic Fungi makes the case that the answers to disease, anxiety, depression and global warming might be found underfoot. And they’re tasty to boot.”

~ Michael Casey,

Boulder Weekly

“He makes mushrooms look totally sexy as they explode into “sporegasms,” releasing their reproductive bits into the environment.”

~ Sarah A. Spitz,

Santa Monica Daily Press

“… Mind-Blowing Science…”

~ Erik Henriksen,

Portland Mercury

“Awe-Inspiring”

~ Kathie Shapiro,

Aspen Times Weekly

Fantastic Fungi is a great film that captures our love affair with the planet we share.

Norman Lear Do not miss Fantastic Fungi, one of the most beautifully powerful and intellectually stimulating films of the year and perhaps even the decade

Pamela Powel, Reel Honest Reviews Louie and his team have accomplished an amazing task – with beautiful imagery, celebrating the quality of nature we have now. Fantastic Fungi is a film that serves to be a bridge of understanding to connect these ideas. By investing in these fungal networks we invest in the webs of life. Time is short. We need to bring this knowledge to the forefront of public consciousness.
