This is a slow moving film, but it does have a few abrupt cuts. There are some striking images in this film. This is mainly for contemplative people who have patience, and for fans of Godfrey Reggio's films.

Entrancing, reminding of a thought-provoking media art exhibit exemplifying the antithesis of Hollywood moviemaking.

Visitors will work for some but fall short for many, it is an experiment in filmmaking that attempts something new but ultimately fails.

Staring at "Visitors," not only do many things seem unusual, many more seem familiar, paralleled by other artists.

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.

A weirdly beautiful film, eerie in its complicated simplicity, and open to seven billion interpretations, all of them valid.

A graceful, dreamlike experience.

The director of the seminal time-lapse aria, Koyaanisqatsi, slows things down for his scintillating and otherworldly latest.

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.

Make of Reggio's arty documentary what you will

There's no plot or characters, but it's one intriguing image after another.

Challenging work but also soothing and richly exploratory, acting as a continuation of Reggio's filmmaking interests with a newfound sense of digital liberation.

"Visitors" restores a sense of monumentality to a medium that has seemed so diminished by recent technological and commercial imperatives ...

Whatever Visitors lacks in philosophical heft it more than compensates for in sheer sensual, textual pleasure. It's good to have Mr. Reggio back.

Godfrey Reggio's Visitors is as much a Zen experience as it is a movie, although as the latter it can be quite astonishing, too - cinema that envelops and enthralls.
