Critics Consensus

While director Godfrey Reggio's filmmaking style has lost some of its initial thrill, Visitors finds him returning to his familiar milieu with customary élan.

Movie Info

Thirty years after "Koyaanisqatsi," Godfrey Reggio-with the support of Philip Glass and Jon Kane-once again leapfrogs over earthbound filmmakers and creates another stunning, wordless portrait of modern life. Presented by Steven Soderbergh in stunning black and white 4K digital projection, "Visitors" reveals humanity's trancelike relationship with technology, which, when commandeered by extreme emotional states, produces massive effects far beyond the human species. The film is visceral, offering the audience an experience beyond information about the moment in which we live. Comprised of only seventy-four shots, "Visitors" takes viewers on a journey to the moon and back to confront them with themselves. (c) Cinedigm

  • The score, by Philip Glass, adds to the off-kilter mood and the faces of a serene gorilla, and a moody child in a playground, prove especially absorbing.

  • For all its beauty -- and in spite of Glass's majestic music -- the effect is bewildering.

    Apr 4, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • A graceful, dreamlike experience.

    Apr 3, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The director of the seminal time-lapse aria, Koyaanisqatsi, slows things down for his scintillating and otherworldly latest.

    Apr 3, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • With only 74 slowly unfolding shots, it's closer to gallery installation than conventional cinema, but for audiences open to the experience, it's inexplicably compelling.

  • Non-narrative films can be opaque in deep ways. Visitors slips into pseudo-profundity. That said, I'd see it again.

Audience Reviews for Visitors

    Shots of faces, followed by shots of buildings, then more faces, and sometimes hands or landscapes, all set to a rich minimalist score by Philip Glass. Now, in theory the human face is infinitely fascinating in its singular expressiveness, and this visual/musical experiment from the director of KOYAANISQUTSI has clear artistic heft; yet, like most people, I was bored.

    Although, as one reviewer has noted, the film is more installation than movie, it does have some mesmerizing quality that keeps one engaged longer than one would have imagined. That length of interest does not extend to the length of the piece however. As I finally tired of it my thoughts were: "I'm not high enough for this work. If I was high, I would've watched all of it."
