The film's one-world thesis is asserted but never made convincing, as Fricke zigzags from the Western Wall to whirling dervishes to the Grand Mosque of Mecca in a superficial gloss on faith (and everything else).

Any one sequence might work powerfully in its own right, but string them together with a musical overlay and the banality of the connections becomes apparent.

The form is ravishing, though the content suffers by comparison.

It is claimed that the great age of travel is dead - that there are no longer amazing, exotic, beautiful and fearsome places for the traveler to discover. A movie like Baraka gives hope.

Nothing in this epic visual poem is less than extraordinary.
