Movie Reviews

High quality production
04/16/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I had been watching Desert Vision at a comfortable volume prior to putting in True North. The first thing I noticed was the sound quality: it was louder and fuller, in fact, I had to turn my system down a fair amount to match my previous settings.The 2nd thing I noticed was the breathtaking photography. Track 1 is full of beautiful blue glacier ice accompanied by a rousing drum/synth track. Slow motion, aerial flyby, time-lapse photography, it's all there. Track 4 is particularly amazing, including a panning-time-lapse sequence.I heartily recommend this title, and it's not just background music. Grab a cup of coffee, turn down the lights, and turn up the volume."

"Bookstore often have a selection of oversize books featuring gorgeous nature photographs. True North expands on this idea by going from still photos to moving video and adding music. The shots were taken in Alaska and Canada and each track focuses on a theme including rugged solitude of mountain peaks, the impossibly deep green of the temerate rainforests, orcas and humpback whales, glacial ice melted into abstract sculptures, and the wonders of the Aurora Borealis. The music of John Serrie, Paul Speer, James Reynolds and Tangerine Dream (who only provide a single track - sorry fans!) fits very well with the scenes.Given the technical expertise in obtaining the photos, creating the music (which is pretty much all synthesizers), and editing them together, it is somewhat surprising that the DVD doesn't seem to be put together as well. The main menu consists of eight boxes, each with a number. No thumbnail video, not even the name of the track. And for you "special feature" junkies, there's really nothing available. You are given the option of having the tracks repeat or run in random order, like you might do on a CD player, but that's it. (And while I'm venting, the disc itself is hard to get out of the case.)So while the disc itself has some annoying quirks, the content itself is spectacular and you'd be hard pressed to find much at the same price."
