Glenn Dunks
Trespass

What sounds like a rather simplistic [film], a potential chore to sit through, actually proves to be an invigorating alternate take at the methods of cinema.

An extensive and virtually flawless presentation of one of American cinema's most fascinatingly singular achievements.

MGM's DVD release presents Koyaanisqatsi in its original 1.85:1 aspect ratio, the value of which can't be underestimated.... Even better served is the audio ... that gives Philip Glass's monumental score the room-filling presence it deserves.

Okay, I get it. Nature is calm, urban life is not, and we are not living as nature intended. Now what?

The new MGM DVDs are the best way to see these films, unless you have access to the director's vault

DVD Verdict

For a film with no direct narrative and no dialogue at all, Koyaanisqatsi is a wrenching, visceral experience.
