Perhaps most surprising, even the festival footage is ho-hum. We feel a distance, instead of being flies on the wall. (Or should we say, on the desert floor?)

As a spectacle and as an idea, Burning Man is strange and beautiful.

Has some lively moments but falls short of expectations.

More time spent on the ground, and with the attendees, would have been ideal, especially since this may be as close as many viewers get to joining in.

Since we can't all attend Burning Man, we can be thankful for "Spark," which is probably the next best thing.

As an official history, Spark shines adequate light; I just wish it had spent a little more time on the shadows.

Audience Reviews for Spark: A Burning Man Story

½

The most captivating parts were the interviews with the founder(s) and behind the scenes of the DPW, and more time spent on those (and related) subjects would have elevated this movie. Entertaining / educational film nonetheless, and the high production value gives it a good boost over other BM docs.
