Ron Fricke’s non-verbal tour of the rituals and patterns that define life on Earth

Planet Earth doesn't have a tourist board, but if it did, it could do worse than beam Samsara into the cosmos.

Director Ron Fricke shot Koyaanisqatsi, and his eye for striking compositions and juxtapositions is undimmed in this commentary-less footage of various rites and processes from around the world.

There’s a multitude of wonders here, but not much going on upstairs other than some fatuous brainfarts about interconnectedness that would seem trite in a tweet from a Hare Krishna, let alone a movie.
