Movie Reviews

A survey of religions in their natural environments
bernie | Arlington, Texas | 09/13/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

""Mystic lands" (1996 TV series documentary) [1996-1997] is a collection of documentaries where we visit different parts of the world and see how religions have evolved in those parts of the world from their origins to what they are today.

There is lots of color lots of sound general descriptions and the most important is when the lock on to a particular location as the time or Greece, they stay in the location long enough for you to get the feeling that you've been there. And also impressive is that this is not a one of those little sound bite modes we keep going back and forth from one person to the next the first of the next and back to the first. However we did hear from different experts.

Disk 1 Bhutan & Greece
Disk 2 Peru & Egypt
Disk 3 Myanmar & the Taj Mahal
Disk 4 Anasazi & Haiti
Disk 5 Bali & Australia
Disk 6 Jerusalem & Varanasi

The narrator for the series is Edward James Olmos
The soundtrack by Chris Spheeris

Aside from the religious aspect is interesting to see all the different technologies of the different areas. I was specifically impress by the looms were used in the Bhutan presentation.
Visually Stunning

"The cinematography is stunning! If you are looking for a DVD collection of different religious practices with regional history, then this is the one to buy."
