Mesmerizing!
19 April 2000 | by dsanchezSee all my reviews

This short is nothing short of mesmerizing! Reggio outdoes his "Koyaanisqatsi" and "Powaqqatsi" in this tribute to the wonders of the animal kingdom. The camera lingers, treks, enfolds and personifies these creatures in startlingly intimate detail, all the while accompanied by (yet another) haunting score by Philip Glass -- pieces of which were also put to excellent use in Weir's "The Truman Show." This one is a must-see in projected form.
