  • Summary: Visually beautiful. This film is stunningly gorgeous and is placed with audio that backs up the visuals nicely. The visuals and audio make enough of an impact and even seem to put the viewer in a sort of trance.

Found it here on Blu-ray.com and absolutely fell in love with it!

  • Excerpt: So, one day I decided to search on this website for documentaries. I saw this one with a great rating and was like "I should see it". I watched the trailer and I felt really excited. So, I bought it. Words cannot express how much I LOVE this documentary.

Masterpiece

  • Excerpt: Another mind-blowing masterpiece from the filmmakers who gave us "Chronos" and "Baraka." The subject of this documentary film is the beauty, grandeur, and horror of life on earth today. The audio and video are reference quality; this is one of the best looking blu rays ever.

  • Summary: I'm doing Samsara a disservice by comparing it to Chronos and Baraka (which the film revisits on several occasions) but also felt underwhelmed by the end; I can't help but feel that it's missing something; a mesmeric otherworldliness that Baraka had (though maybe it's the soundtrack).

  • Summary: This movie falls in the very select category of non-verbal films. It is not made for everyone. Most movies present a story to the viewer and the viewer has no reflection to make about the storyline until the movie is over.

  • Summary: Beautiful film. Bookending the film with the creation and destruction of the sand mandala captures the beauty of life on Earth, the fragility of all things, and the courage to continue living despite the impermanence of everything around us.

  • Excerpt: A spectacular documentary, unbelievable image really shocked me. PQ is amazing! One of the best transfer I've ever seen! 8K transfer of 70mm film made the crystal clear image, I can't see a single noise. AQ is fantastic as well.

  • Summary: Shot over 5 years in 25 countries on 65mm film stock and then scanned at 8K you can imagine this film looks absolutely incredible! There is no dialogue or story, but just a cool flow of beautiful tracking- and/or time-lapsing shots put to ambient music with perfect vocals by Lisa Girrard.

  • Summary: My review is based on my own thoughts. Please respect my opinion, as I do respect yours. I have to start by saying I loved Koyaanisqatsi. On the other hand i did not like Baraka.

  • Summary: This was a great movie, I saw it twice just to take my other friend. Whoever these critics are need to be FIRED. This was a beautiful movie, there's couple parts that were a bit odd and a little strange. But this is a very good, well done, beautiful movie. Also all done without speaking a word.
