A beautiful and also deeply disturbing, painful movie. Beautiful juxtaposed against the nightmare that is our food addiction, gun addiction, and great need for "things." One to think about, but I would never watch it more than once.

I was looking to watching this, but to my disappointment the first disc is cracked and would not play in any of my DVD players :(

I too found the movie disturbing. Yes, some of the imagery is beautiful, but some of it is just too over the top. You don't know if the next theme is going to be one you love or one that makes you sick. Usually I love movies off the beaten path but I couldn't make it through this one.

Mind blowing DVD. Absolutely beautiful. Must see.

Thanks to ktnv's pointer on "continuous flow". It is more of Baraka, film by the same producers, which showcased some of the best, and worse, parts of nature and human life. This time with spectacular footages on religious sites and artifacts mixed in with raw images on human behavior, from modern slaughter houses to a transsexual beauty contest.

A beautiful film with much to contemplate. The extras are not to be missed.

Parts of this film could have come from National Geographic (and I mean that in the nicest way). Technically the film is excellent, although some of the speeded-up time lapse sections made me dizzy and a bit nauseous. A small amount of the film showed the sacred and beautiful (you can see most of them in the pictures on the cover of the DVD). However, overall I found the film disturbing. From the huge slums walled off from the cities to the people scavenging the dump heaps, to the assembly line processing of chickens and hogs and food and making irons and guns and bullets, everything is too much, too many, too impersonal. I am left feeling disturbed, with no ideas/suggestions how to deal with the life-destroying things I witnessed in this film. Be prepared! Not for the faint-hearted.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: I watched with my kids but had to fast forward a scene when an office worker creates different faces/images with clay and paint. The use of red and black paint was amazing (watched it again without kids) but too creepy for my little ones.
