Professional Reviews:

For the spectacular Blu-ray debut of its great, long-running science series NOVA, WGBH could not have chosen a better high-def premiere than the visually stunning Fractals: Hunting the Hidden Dimension. ...Combining rich animations with with interviews of noted experts (including octogenarian Mandelbrot), this excellent documentary will lead viewers to a fresh, awe-inspiring appreciation of the natural world around us -- a world in which math, nature, and art are intrinsically connected. Highly recommended." -- Video Librarian
