Technically, a wow. ‘Koyaanisqatsi’ cinematographer Ron Fricke offers more wordless eco-spectacle. With startling depth and luminosity, a tumble of images whirls the viewer on a world tour: ancient temples and ethnic rites, unfolding landscapes and teeming cities. Japanese snow monkeys; Angkor Wat; Grand Central Station; Auschwitz; a chicken processing plant; Mecca; the changing skies over Utah: Fricke has been there. That’s the problem. Any one sequence might work powerfully in its own right, but string them together with a musical overlay and the banality of the connections becomes apparent.

Dr Doolittle

While evoking some emotion, no proper direction and due to no captions you dont always no what you are watchin- frustrating! Just a bit self indulgent (not very uplifting)
