Has anybody else seen and loved Ron Fricke's film Baraka?
Firstly it's visually the most stunning well shot film I've ever seen. It's a non-narrative and basically non-verbal documentary comprised of sequences from a huge range of environments and locations. I think you could say it concerns itself with culture, the human condition, nature and oneness. Aside from that it's difficult to identify an exact message on first watch.
It's something about the combination of the footage and the amazing score by Michael Stearns that is really deeply effecting as the film slowly progresses along.
I've seen reviews full of praise, but an equal number of critical responses too
If you've seen Baraka I'd love to hear you're opinions, and ask whether you think it touched on any values that are present in Buddhism? If you haven't I really encourage you to find it and watch it!
