Absolutely astonishing. I will not water this review down with superfluous talkings of what it contains. If you want the most amazing viewing experience you've ever seen at home on a Blu-Ray player, get this. It was filmed on 70mm celluloid and upgraded to 8k. 70mm film. 70 If I was living in the Soylent Green world, and I wanted to commit suicide like Edward Robinson, I would request this as my outgoing visual. This is why I love film.

Ron Fricke's meditative opus on birth, life and death is epic filmmaking without banality. Sheltered lolly-gaggers that believe 'Finding Nemo' to be a visual odyssey won't find an ounce of CGI in Fricke's celebration of culture, diversity and global evolution. Natural settings, ancient ruins, dense cities and blazing oil fields are captured with a richness and scope that, driven by Michael Stearns' evocative soundscape, is at once grandoise and poetic, generating a cinematic intensity that has influenced many a documentary since. In the increasingly shrinking individuality of contemporary living, 'Baraka' is a panoramic chain of harmony, purpose and inevitability - ours is a world that is larger than its parts, yet somehow smaller than the spiritual forces that bind it.
