Audience Reviews for Chronos

Definitely more IMAX-y than Fricke's later work, which often makes it more bland, but also results it a few over-the-top visually intense scenes.

The gorgeous cinematography lends itself well to the time-lapse photography prevalent throughout, whether we observe clouds rolling through a canyon or pedestrians visiting a cathedral. Michael Stearns' music is intense at times while relaxed at others, allowing you to observe the visuals while getting a sense for the atmosphere of the location.

Though not technically a breathtaking or original effort, this film nevertheless features the same kind of visual beauty as its spiritual ancestor Koyaanisqatsi. Putting this on in the background of a party or gathering is nearly equivalent to having expensive art on the walls.
