Koyaanisqatsi

Koyaanisqatsi ★★★★

Really phenomenal score by Phillip Glass. The way in which it marries with the images is truly wonderful. The films early images are all natural, rock formations, clouds gathering and dispersing. It almost feels foreboding in a sense. Then the music turns more sinister, man enters the scene. Big machinery, black smoke engulfing everything, war and destruction take over. But there is also life and progression and construction. The perspective of nature changes with man made objects. The reflections of the clouds in the sky from the skyscrapers. There is just so many powerful moments but I cannot but together enough cohesive thoughts on it yet.
