I wound up buying a big screen TV and this movie was 50% of my reason for doing so. The other 50% was Blade Runner.

Add Giorgio Moroder's version of Metropolis and you'd sound exactly like me.

Desidiosus
Thanks, I hadn't seen this since 1987 or thereabouts.

-1 for google video quality, plus a million for koyaanisqatsi

Beautiful disaster? Try "masterpiece." Or has it been long enough that it's the hipster 'in' thing to hate on the Qatsi movies?
haole
the "disaster" i would be referring to is culmination of what we've become as the human race (as is masterfully portrayed in the film.) life out of balance is the disaster.

Bored
Not really a movie I should be watching on a day of isolated boredom, but I do love me some Koyaanisqatsi.

Gorgeous.

Why isn't this available on Blu-Ray yet?

This is pretty much the greatest thing. Are Powaqqatsi and Naqoyqatsi up by any chance?

I think it's a lovely, sweeping film with a lovely score. The Grid is still one of my fave Glass compositions.

As a meditation or commentary on the insane complexity of modern American life, vs. the more "balanced" and now mostly lost native cultures that roamed this continent pre-whitey, or to display/contrast the sprawling, frenetic works of man vs. the ever-dwindling unspoiled areas of this country that remain, and even as a sort of an odd discussion of a kind of eschatology, I think Godfrey's just shootin' fish in a barrel.

We knew that. I mean, it's correct, it's pretty, but it didn't stop nobody from strip mining any damn hill.

I don't know, maybe that was the whole damn point - look everybody! We live these crazy wasteful polluting planet-dooming lives and we're all just totally fucked. But it's pretty breathtaking to watch in 70mm, ain't it?
