A wonderufl movie without a single word of dialogue - in other words a rare cinematic find. Do not miss the film that redefines how a good movie should appear. You'll be hard-pressed to find better footage anywhere in the world. 5/5

As a photographer, I really appreciate a movie in which there's exceptional cinematography. Baraka is the most visually stunning movie I've ever seen... highly recommended.

Amazing movie. It was filmed by Ron Fricke in 70mm and named from a Sufi word for "breath of life" or "blessing." It was shot on 6 continents and in 24 countries. It's one of those rare movies which must just be experienced rather than relying on descriptions or reviews. The second dvd, which goes into the filming process and identifies some of the locations, expanded my understanding and appreciation. There are some disturbing scenes of Auschwitz, Pol Pot's killing fields, and a funeral pyre on the Ganges along with transcendently beautiful scenes. I would love to have seen it in IMAX format. Highly recommended.

Gotta agree with angel4899. This movie is better than Koyaanisqatsi in every way. One of my favorite visual docs.

A poor-man's Koyaanisqatsi. Visually, thematically and sonically, this one doesn't measure up. Get Koyaanisqatsi instead.
