Movie Reviews

Ethnographic ecstasy
sammy | NYC | 01/18/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I had to watch this twice before I could absorb what I had seen.
it was like a dream, this bizarre world that you only think exists in your wildest dreams. Filmmaker Hisham Mayet, who has done a series of these on the sublime frequencies label creates a diffused world where time and space are interwoven inside this magical square in Marrakech. it feels like a lost in time scene that could and probably has been active for hundereds of years. sublimefrequencies.com is a place you should visit for a complete sense of the scope of this amazing catalog."
Amazing and otherwordly.

"Holy cow! this comes otta no where, filmed in Marrackesh 's Jemaa El Fna, this film is shot in a raw uncomprimising style that defies any parameters. the performances are ritualistic, cathartic, and brutally honest. It looks and feels like you are trasported into a timeless vacuum that trancends all barriers of time and space. Filmed in Marrakech's legendary 'Jemaa El Fna', the central square of the final outpost before venturing into the great beyond of the western Sahara desert, this film is one of the most vivid documents ever presented capturing the raw folk stylings of Moroccan music. Shot at night, the performers manifest their passions right before your eyes, some drifting into extreme characters, others floating in dark, flowering breeze.""
