    Koyaanisqatsi is the most obvious precedent for this, given the films’ similar styles and Fricke’s work on both, and I think this is marginally inferior. I feel that the other film is more tightly assembled and less heavy handed – there were times when I though Baraka was trying to force a thesis of “modern = bad” without doing the structural legwork to carry that conclusion through. And I also think the music here, a somewhat clichéd (but effective) choice…

    The stunning views of the earth make me glad I have an HDTV. The juxtaposition of human conquest with said views make me more than a little disappointed in our species thus far. We have so much potential!

    Mind. Blown. Think this one will be a rite of passage to watch with my boys as they each turn 8 or so. My oldest (6) sat through some of it with me tonight but was a bit too young yet. This is the story of all of us. Gorgeous on Blu-Ray too.

    The other day I read a particularly glowing review of Linklater's Boyhood in which the reviewer said it was 'one of the fullest encapsulations of life ever committed to film'. Obviously, this was the opinion of a Caucasian male American.
    Ron Fricke's Baraka sweeps across millions of miles to ever nook and cranny of our planet earth to sniffle out the life we arent always aware of. It is positively bursting with life in all its forms. So in a…

    I'm not so sure I "got" the message, it's not as clear as Koyaanisqatsi but it still is one hell of a movie that looks gorgeous on blu.

    Occasionally, I just want to sit down and watch a film, any film, as long as it fits into a specific genre. I might say "I'm in the mood for a comedy" or "I could go for a kick ass Sci Fi right now", and then I walk over to the wall o' film and find exactly what I am looking for to whet my appetite. As the clock struck midnight and a new day began, I realized what I…

    It is difficult for me to think of what to say about this film, given that it is without narration and it's footage from across the world accompanied perfectly by an astonishing and unique musical score from Michael Stearns... and what the movie means and what it's about is up to interpretation by the viewer.

    I won't reveal what my opinions are as I don't want to spoil anything for anyone who hasn't seen the film yet. But, I say…
