Mesmerising. Never expected to see a purely visual film as powerful and engaging as this. The musical arrangement is beautiful too.

I liked Baraka a bit more, but this was still pretty solid.

Reminiscent of Man with a Movie Camera and Berlin: Portrait of a Great City. Probably more visually stunning than either of those - this film has first-rate cinematography and editing - but somewhat less compelling. Some of the edits were strained (such as a satellite picture of a city dissolving into micrograph of a 1982-era circuit board. In conjunction with Glass' score, a terrific media experience.

I don't think comparisons to Baraka should dilute the importance of this movie. It's beautifully captured; considering (or not) it was made a decade earlier, this is one solid piece of work.

i get the idea. visually beautiful. i wanted to be mesmerized but ended up incredibly annoyed and irritated by the way-too-fuckin-long and on the nose sped up montages. the music was unbearable. ending made up for it a tiny bit.

Visually, it is stunning and reminds me of the wonders of our world. Some scenes though made me feel like I was inside one of those new video games with all the shadowy graphics. That's not a bad thing, just surprising.

Well done. Great soundtrack by Phillip Glass.

Solid indeed, though nowhere as beautiful or vivid as Baraka. Yes Baraka was shot 10 years later but it's still a far better overall film to recommend regardless.

A movie without dialog, just pictures and music... it's quite extraordinary and contains a strong message. I'm not intending to watch it again but it did leave a strong impression and created a unique atmosphere.
