Jam! Movies

It is psychedelic, hypnotic, exhilarating and horrifying, and sometimes all at once.

Feels like a bloated mass of data without much coherence.

It's not a film to be taken literally on any level, but its focus always appears questionable.

At a time when commercialism has squeezed the life out of whatever idealism American moviemaking ever had, Godfrey Reggio's career shines like a lonely beacon.

Reggio's trippy, ambitious downer can also sometimes come across like nothing more than a glorified Nike ad.

This is a film living far too much in its own head.

The sound of Ma's cello alone is reason not to miss Naqoyqatsi.

I have problems with Naqoyqatsi as a film, but as a music video it's rather remarkable.

Reggio and Glass so rhapsodize cynicism, with repetition and languorous slo-mo sequences, that Glass's dirgelike score becomes a fang-baring lullaby.

The filmmaker seems determined to deliver profound messages about mankind, but most are so simple a child could have crafted them.

William Arnold
Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Like all abstract art, the film does not make this statement in an easily accessible way, and -- unless prewarned -- it would be very possible for a reasonably intelligent person to sit through its tidal wave of imagery and not get this vision at all.

A disturbing and frighteningly evocative assembly of imagery and hypnotic music composed by Philip Glass.

Though it inspires some (out-of-field) creative thought, the film is -- to its own detriment -- much more a cinematic collage than a polemical tract.

Will probably stay in the shadow of its two older, more accessible Qatsi siblings.

Journal News (Westchester, NY)

Stands as one of the year's most intriguing movie experiences, letting its imagery speak for it while it forces you to ponder anew what a movie can be.

Who needs mind-bending drugs when they can see this, the final part of the 'qatsi' trilogy, directed by Godfrey Reggio, with music by Philip Glass?

A bold and subversive film that cuts across the grain of what is popular and powerful in this high-tech age, speaking its truths with spellbinding imagery and the entrancing music of Philip Glass.
