Samsara is Dazzling

Director and cinematographer Ron Fricke (“Baraka”) has put together the movie equivalent of one of those eye-popping National Geographic photo spreads about far-flung peoples and places. The movie is a flow of dazzling sequences presented without overt connections.

We see, at various points, Buddhist monks creating a sand mandala, stained glass windows in a cathedral, the manufacture of guns and sex dolls, people praying at the Wailing Wall, erupting volcanoes, garbage pickers, the mountains of Yosemite, an infant being baptized, gun owners, workers in a sulfur mine, meat processing factories, office employees toiling in cubicles, and on and on.

Roger Ebert writes: “Ron Fricke’s “Samsara” is a film composed of powerful images, most magnificent, some shocking, all photographed with great care in the highest possible HD resolution —Filmed over five years, in locations in 25 countries, it is the kind of experience you simply sink into.”

Enjoy this eye-popping trailer!
