"The headline catching phrase on this package says "In the tradition of Koyaanisqatsi and Baraka" Sure, if that "Tradition" means turning on a camera and filming something....that's to me where "Tradition" ends with this film.
The entire soundtrack is a full European orchestra that is in constant conflict with the native scenery of Cambodia - let alone the fact that the editorial pace is often so quick you never have time to really absorb any shots. (the shots are no where near the 70mm footage like Baraka) If you've ever been to these Asian lands you'll want to hear the sounds and the people - not a ridiculous symphony designed to evoke such an overblown emotional response. Sure, this might appeal to some people - but if you, like myself, had such an awestruck inspirational moment when seeing Baraka and fell in love with the beautiful images and music that you wondered why cinema couldn't do that kind of work more often - then spare yourself the torture and avoid this film!"
