The New Yorker has a review of "Creation," the new movie about the life of Charles Darwin. "As a journey through Darwin’s discoveries, 'Creation' fails, although, given the intricacy and the patience of his working methods, it is hard to imagine how such a film might succeed," writes Anthony Lane. The movie focuses on Darwin's The Origin of Species, in particular aiming "to register the cautionary tremors that preceded the quake" of the book's long-delayed publication, according to the review.
