Powaqqatsi ★★

This film, while well-meaning (and gorgeously shot), is nevertheless not only problematic as hell, but it lacks the focus and structure of its predecessor (the transcendent KOYAANISQATSI) and thus fails to explore or define its thesis (blatantly stated at the end of the film in a title card) in any sort of meaningful or satisfying way. Too tired right now to deconstruct why; may return to this review later.
