    If you want to get visually lost in a documentary. This is what's gonna do it.
    You don't watch this for the story, but yet all these images unfold in front of your eyes.
    Cannot wait to watch the sequel to this.
    PS if you really want to be mindfucked by this, watch it when stoned.

    Baraka showcases mesmerizing photography once again by Ron Fricke, who also shot Koyaanisqatsi (1982). Unlike the latter, this gives us a glimpse through various cultures around the world, but also synchronizing an enchanting score (by Michael Stearns) with each shot.

    With its direct images, enveloping spiritualism, and earnest curiosity about globe-spanning rituals, a trek is made from hope in variety to despair in decimation, settling somewhere in the middle, like a peaceful reconciliation.

    Tied with 2001: A Space Odyssey as the greatest experience you could ever get from watching a film/documentary. No words can describe how breath-taking and mind-blowing this really is!

    Ron Fricke, who photographed Koyaanisqatsi, does doubly duty as director and cinematographer, and creates another masterpiece very much in the same vein as his previous collaborative effort. While Koyaanisqatsi has the edge, simply because it was a novel exploration of what film is capable of (and also has Philip Glass's score), Baraka is a much more assured and accomplished work, with crystal clear images and stunning composition and editing. Comparing the reality of Fricke's images with the invented, CGI-heavy worlds…

    Con sinceridad, podría decir que esta es la mejor pieza audiovisual que he visto. Impactante y conmovedora en muchos sentidos. Excelente ejemplo de como se debe usar el sonido en un film, sea ficción o documental.

    No language, so no translation.

    It speaks in magnificent images, sounds, and music.
    The film consists of awesome sights, joyful, sad, always beautiful.
    The best bit is the synchronous dancing and singing, you'll know what I mean when you see it. They have perfected their ritual, and in their faces we do not see strain or determination, despite the physical ordeal, but contentment and joy.

    "Baraka" is a Sufi word meaning "a blessing, or the breath, or the essence of…
