Summary: Ron Fricke, the cinematographer on the trippy "Koyaanisqatsi", made this similarly impressionistic, dialogue-free photo exhibition come to life. Shot in 24 countries and at all sorts of locations (ancient temples, Auschwitz, a chicken-processing plant), the film attempts to make a subconscious or poetic point about the relationship between living creatures (particularly humans) and their environments. It's a breathtaking Herculean effort, but it is also opaque in meaning and probably best appreciated by viewers already in an incoherent state. Worse, the film loses much of its intended magic on video. --"Tom Keogh, Amazon.com"
