Review of “Le Blob, un génie sans cerveau” (2019)

Moving picture, 50 minutes

Seen in 2020.

Seen with Swedish-language narration on SVT’s Vetenskapens värld.

Research on Physarum polycephalum.

Beautifully styled with visual quotes of The Blob (1958). The location of each interviewee is introduced using a tiny world map featuring the slime mold munching on a trail of oats. This presentation and the science are both delightful.
