Koyaanisqatsi

Koyaanisqatsi is a twenty year old movie that is being released on DVD on September 17th. The title means "life out of balance" in Hopi.

It has no explicit plot (although there is an implicit message in the film), and no dialogue. It is a stunning montage of natural and man made scenes. The music that accompanies the film is by Philip Glass.

If the techs have done well with this flick, it ought to be spectacular on DVD!

Phoenix Very Happy

Sounds interesting! I

wonder what the effect is like.

When it's out on DVD I'll look for it.

I got it in the mail

from Amazon last week, and it was MORE than I had expected. Anyone with a large screen and decent speakers will LOVE this

film. Smile

I suspect that

druggies will love it as well, after all I'm convinced that the media player music visualizations were made for them.

Great movie,

Phoenix. Glass' score for Cocteau's "Beauty and the Beast" is another gem and it looks like they are going to release this

as a DVD as well as his "Dracula." I also love "Mishima" which is as good as this score and "Kundun."

The third in this series of films -- NAQOYQATSI -- has just been released, again set to a score by Glass. The title translates from Hopi as "a life of killing each other." It's currently playing at the Angelica Film Center on W. Houston St., NYC and probably at a venue not too distant from you. It was reviewed in a recent issue of The New Yorker. The reviewer's verdict was "Depressing, but that may be the point."

I thought he was a senator. They made a movie about him?

Sounds good. I hope we have INHD here.

I saw Koyaanisqatsi many years ago, and bought the DVD when it came out.

You can find "Chronos" on DVD for rental or purchasing. NetFlix has it on their internet rental library. I enjoy all of the films but "Koyaanisqatsi" remains the prime mover.
