Ultimately, a collage film is only as good as its constituent parts, and, with a few exceptions, the brief snippets from this particular day on earth are far too prosaic to be illuminating.
Howdy Andrew. I must say I can't believe that you don't think their footage was interesting!
I saw this film at a screening in Austin and was amazed at the diversity of footage - a fascinating inside look at North Korea, several religious customs I've never even heard of before (the ornately decorated bride somewhere in Eastern Europe and the sword-wielding ascetics in South Asia).
I do agree that they did a much nicer job than the Ridley Scott film, and I would certainly encourage everyone to go take a look. The film is really spectacular.

We watched a different film, apparently. I lost count of the number of times tears came to my eyes, so I'm afraid I didn't even see all that was illuminating. One Day on Earth made the world seem smaller, and I was humbled for the privilege of watching it.
