We just got back from seeing Samsara. Really good. I've loved Ron Frickle's films over the years and with Baraka being his most famous work, this new film continues its legacy. The formula remains the same, however the technology is state of the art and allows the film to get deeper into different aspects of civilisation. The biggest difference Samsara has to Baraka was that its message is stronger. Rather than simply presenting an eye opening look at the world we live in, this offers moral suggestions. Consumption is probably the most obvious statement being made with adverse poverty dominating the screen before production lines, fast food and bulk buying take over. The footage is incredible and the editing is mesmerising. The film builds a rhythm that captivates and puts you right into it. If you enjoyed Baraka I reckon this one is a step up. I would love to see his next film shot for Imax, possibly in 3D. But hey, given how long it takes to make these films.... thats a while off.
