Invitation to Koyaanisqatsi

von: Manafonistas Filed under: Blog | TB | 1 Comment

„Make no mistake – you need to get into the right mood to properly enjoy this film. Try watching it with your cynical or populist friends and they’ll pour scorn upon it. Don’t try to convince others to ‚get it‘ as they won’t.

The best thing to do is to turn off all of the lights, pump up the sound and absorb yourself in the spectacle that unfolds on the screen. If you do this, you’ll experience a breathtaking, moving and exciting piece of art. There are few films that reach these heights – 2001: A Space Odyssey is one that instantly comes to mind.

Don’t analyse it until it’s finished. Talking through it will ruin it. I’ve found that the film works best on an emotional level so switch your brain off and just watch and listen. By the time it’s finished, you’ll feel like you’ve been on an exhausting and exhilarating journey that you’ll want to take again not long afterwards.“

  1. Ian M:

    Naqoyqatsi is good if you use Tomorrow’s Harvest Boards of Canada as the soundtrack.

    Powaqqatsi works quite well with Popol Vuh’s early albums, Phaedra by Tangerine Dream, Moroder-era Sparks and the Greatest Hits of Al Jolson.
