Visitors" means to be transfixing, if not chastening, and, projected on a large screen, may have had the presence of “2001: A Space Odyssey” or “King Kong” (two spectacles that Mr. Reggio evokes). Seen on a monitor, however, it is less than overwhelming. Some images, notably the close-ups of Triska or a flock of gulls in super slow motion, are quite strong. Others are purely ambient — less suggestive of “2001” than a multimillion-dollar screen saver or virtual fish tank.
