Critic Reviews for Chronos: A Visual and Musical Journey Through Time

All Critics (2)

Meditative at times, fluid, like sand through an hourglass or clouds across the sky, then tedious at others. "Chronos" flows with music and images on the wings of time.

Audience Reviews for Chronos: A Visual and Musical Journey Through Time

Its cool looking and listening during the movie but it can get boring. Its an Art film but I think it goes far beyond to Artsy for me.

[i]The Killing of a Chinese Bookie[/i] was a very good character study. I think the film focused a little too much on the skits at the strip club though. [center][img][/img] [/center] [i]Chronos[/i] was ok, but I watched it when I was exhausted so I wasn't able to enjoy it as much as I would have. It was no where near [i]Baraka [/i]though. [center][img][/img] I watched these before I came over to San Diego. It's been great so far. Weather is much better than Indiana's weather, and the zoo was a lot of fun. Also, I got to see first hand the problems in the housing market here. In Indiana people's houses aren't priced into the stratosphere like many of the places here. For instance, I walked through an open house here in a home that maybe would have gotten 60k in Indiana, but that same house in San Diego was 1.6 million dollars. My jaw hit the floor when I saw the pricetag. I would love to live here someday, but I have a feeling that I never will and with the state going bankrupt I don't know if it would be a good idea to live here in the coming years anyway. The food is also a lot better here than it is in Indiana. I'm all about food. Until next time.... [/center]
