"Koyaanisqatsi tells a story about our world. It shows the beautiness and dreadfulness of our planet, humans and inventions. There is no dialog; there's only slow motion and speedup picture combined to awesome soundtrack. Very, very remarkable movie. "

Movie Diary 2012 (551 movies items)

"13.6. Audiovisuaalisesti ainutlaatuista, meditatiivista ja ennen kaikkea hienovaraista kuvausta ihmisen erkaantumisesta luonnosta ja elämisestä alati mutkistuvan teknologian kautta. Luonto- sekä kaupunkikuvat ovat varsin huikeita, cropattuinakin, ja jopa ihmiskunnan itsetuhoisuutta heijastavat kohtaukset näyttävät kumman kauniilta. Niin temaattisen kuin teoreettisen merkityksensä sekä rakenteensa osalta 80-luvun tärkeimpiä ja ikuisimpia mestariteoksia, kuten moneen kertaan on todettu."

" Story/Writing: ★★★★ (4 / 5) Acting: N/A Visuals: ★★★★☆ (4.5 / 5) Soundtrack: ★★★★ (4 / 5) Overall: ★★★★☆ (4.5 / 5) Beautiful / striking film. Stunning cinematography, by Ron Fricke, accompanied by a fantastic score, by Philip Glass. Starts with some gorgeous natural landscape shots, and works it's way into shots of cityscapes, and civilization / industrialization, I guess trying to contrast them. I especially love the cityscape shots. If you dig nice cinemato"

"Mystisten hyminämusiikkien ja silmää tuudittavien luonnonmaisemien vaihtuminen levottoman taustapauhun värittämäksi hysteerisen moderniksi helvetinkattilaksi, kuvainnollisesti sanottuna itseään syöväksi käärmeeksi, saa aikaan juuri sen fiiliksen, mitä tekijät arvaamatta ovat halunneet välittää: kaipuuta takaisin alkuun, rauhaan ja harmoniaan. Suurimmaksi miinukseksi käykin juuri Koyaanisqatsin oma tehokeino, alun tunnelmaa ja rentoutta kun olisi halunnut nähdä huomattavasti e"
