    If aliens were to ask you "where are you from?", you would just give them this film to watch. This is Earth, this is life, this is what we are.

    Made for IMAX. Dated, still full of awe, wonder and amazement though. Fantastic.

    "A cinematic gap year of forest temples, baking deserts and teeming cities."

    "Nothing in this epic visual poem is less than extraordinary."

    BARAKA is a beautiful documentary with no narration or plot: it consists of beautiful 70mm footage from all over the world, compiled and ordered with minimal structure and narrative.

    There are fantastic moments throughout. I don't think the Tomb of Pope Alexander has ever looked as amazing as it does here, except for maybe in person. The dazzling interior of Shah Cheragh, an Iranian mosque, made my jaw drop. There are countless gorgeous nature shots as well, including a contemplative…

    I just picked this up on Blu-Ray. Hands down this is the best looking disk I have ever seen. If you own a Blu-Ray player if any kind, just go buy this disk to show off the budding format.nnOh yeah, and the movie is pretty great as well. The cinematography is simply amazing.

    One of the most beautiful film experiences I've had. As a film without dialogue or plot you have to rely on sound and image, and this film delivers both in spades. Much like Messrs Malick and Lubezki, Ron Fricke seems to see the world in a slightly different way to other film makers, and the results are breathtaking, humbling, heartbreaking, and awe inspiring.

    How am I supposed to rate this? I was really high.

    One thing I am sure of: There was much enjoyment.

    Lesser things than Baraka have turned people religious, created wars and doomed entire groups of people.

    Baraka is quite the powerful film, as the photographed sequences of various people in their natural habitat and scenes from sacred sites and religious temples, portray the world we human live in. And the world we have created.

    There's a marriage between music and imagery here that elevates every single minute from the state of pretty pictures to a profoundly moving experience. It's hard…
