Audience Reviews for Another Planet

3. Another Planet Wed Jan 14, 2009 Starz #12 7pm B 85 :fresh: This doc was good, not great. Surprising, since it won the 2008 Maysles Brothers Award for Best Documentary at the Denver Film Fest. I saw 11 docs at DFF 2008 and I think every one of them was better than Another Planet. I even saw a documentary called Megalopolis, which was super similar to Another Planet, but far superior. I think what dragged this down was one of the main elements that probably was intended to set this documentary apart, and that was the stories of the 7 different children living in oppressive and poverty stricken conditions around the world. Their narratives only touched the surface and made the film muddy and unfocused. I wanted to care about the stories of these children, but I wasn't given enough information before the film moved on to it's main "Koyaanisqatsi derived" focus. If you run across this and have an interest, check it out. Otherwise, be on the lookout for Megalopolis.
