Critic Reviews for Powaqqatsi
Reggio's work may be mesmerizing and technically engrossing, but it's also narrowly self-righteous. Instead of expanding our consciousness, he instead seeks to squeeze it into his point of view through a movie that tries to tell us what to think.
'shows the consequences of what we have done in the past and the danger of where we are heading'
You'd be hard-pressed to find another movie that conveys the contrasts of life in the modern world more effectively.
Audience Reviews for Powaqqatsi
Disappointing sequel to Koyaanisqatsi. The focus has shifted away from the marvellous wonders of Planet Earth and onto life in developing nations. Although a worthy, interesting portrait it doesn't capture my imagination nor hold my attention anywhere near as well its predecessor. The music is rather irritating too!
This movie is more personable than its predecessor Koyaanisqatsi. The music is tribal and danceable at some parts. It had people in motion with nature; I won't say I understood what it all meant.
