Exactly what those links between music and nature are is not totally clear, but there's an entrancing harmony between what we see and hear.
A must for fans of the avant-garde pixie.
The galactic and microscopic visuals have a soothing warmth, tending toward shades of gold and dusty rose, while Björk's electronic-influenced backing oscillates between contained thuds and freer steel-drum-like patterns.
Onscreen, Bjork and her musicians simply can't hold us rapt through the many abstract, ponderous moments the way they could onstage.
Biophilia proves hugely ambitious and unfortunately unable to avoid falling apart somewhat without the complete story [of its creation].
To adapt a very old quotation, Biophilia Live asserts that nothing human is foreign to nature.
Time-lapse photography, striking lighting, theatrical intensity and Björk's infectious enthusiasm will make this an irresistible attraction for her many fans.
Part live performance, part abstract nature doco and part Space Odyssey-style psychedelic mindf*ck...as a one-off big-screen experience, it's definitely a trip.
Bjork's fans will adore this film, which captures the last night of her Biophilia world tour with remarkable artistry and an attention to detail.
The faithful may be enchanted, but others may feel ground down by repetitive, atonal Stockhausen melodies played on Fisher Price toys.
The film-makers Peter Strickland and Nick Fenton manage to bring a sense of mystery and wonder to what was clearly more than just another gig.
I assume that Björk: Biophilia Live was more thrilling in concert than on film, or else half the audience would have been asleep.
Biophilia is not one of my favorite Björk albums, far from it actually, but for the fans out there who love it more than I do this concert film will certainly prove to be a special experience, a psychedelic trip in which her music is interwoven so harmonically with beautiful images.
