Ratings & Reviews

  1. F/K's rating of the film Samsara

    Ron Fricke shows the planet's most beautiful, depressing, perverse, traditional, breathtaking and futuristic moments that will make you think. And the soundtrack is godlike and perfect.

  2. Jugu Abraham's rating of the film Samsara

    Samsara would dazzle you--if you have not seen Godfrey Reggio's Koyaanisqatsi made some 35 years ago--with Fricke as the cinematographer and Reggio, a monk-turned-filmmaker, the director. Reggio was an intellectual--Fricke is a mere craftsman. Fricke's images are eye candy without anything new to offer. Fricke's choice of music lacks the class of the Reggio-Philip Glass collaboration. Give me Koyaanisqatsi any day.

  3. Arandhitio Ballagi's rating of the film Samsara

  4. vizija's rating of the film Samsara

  5. MisterColo93's rating of the film Samsara

    3.8/5 INCREDIBLE PHOTOGRAPHY THEN... the void

  6. C҉ă҉t҉ă҉l҉i҉n҉'s rating of the film Samsara

    This disingenuous insemination of Dharma shows oriental cultures not as they are but instead patronizes their beliefs as a commodity to awe the effortlessly amused Euro-female audience who love to post pictures of their trips to Thailand on social media. 2/5 would pretend to be deep again.

  7. Graveyard Poet's rating of the film Samsara

    The most complex, emotionally powerful, and visually stunning of Ron Fricke's films. Samsara digs deepest of all, encompassing the totality of global philosophical, social, and spiritual themes.

  8. Bernardo Crastes's rating of the film Samsara

    This sort of movies are timeless, filled with gorgeous imagery that makes you feel like you've travelled the world after you're done with them. This one, despite having a good flow, falls a bit flat in terms of essence and critique and lacks the transcendental spirituality of Baraka. Still worthwhile, though, mostly for the new things the passing of time has brought.

  9. RodrigoPereira's rating of the film Samsara

    Not as impressive as its opulent predecessor, it still manages to convey a glimpse of today notwithstanding the unbearable sign of politics of self. Lisa Gerrard doing soundtrack is a treat.

  10. ginobartolomi's rating of the film Samsara

    This is art. This is music. This is culture. This is our planet.

  11. -REM-'s rating of the film Samsara

  12. Faustgelopoulos's rating of the film Samsara

  13. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film Samsara

  14. Mario Tomchev's rating of the film Samsara

    great and even more greatly superficial

  15. Goblin Kane's rating of the film Samsara

    Beautiful imagery which is only sometimes let down by ham-fisted attempts at social commentary.

  16. Dan's rating of the film Samsara

    If NASA sends out another Voyager Golden Record, they should include this film.

  17. BernardoL's rating of the film Samsara

    Tudo muito bonito mas á exceção da sequência sobre o tratamento animal, não há grande substância.

  18. Chris's rating of the film Samsara

    absolutely incredible, beautiful, stunning, perfect, etc. etc. etc.

  19. ara's rating of the film Samsara

  20. Mister Monkeyman's rating of the film Samsara

    Deserves that overused accolade - stunning.

  21. smndvdcl's rating of the film Samsara

    Every psychotherapist that champions mindfulness should also prescribe this film. 'Koyaaniqatsi' was defining, 'Baraka' took the premise further, 'Samsara' is a masterpiece.

  22. ORAS's rating of the film Samsara

  23. Nick Benson's rating of the film Samsara

    The human elements are the most engaging. Those looks at the camera

  24. Roland Nicolai Fanega's rating of the film Samsara

    Highlights the beauty and inelegance of nature vs civilization. Captures the magnificence of our world & the aspects of it that we often forget exists. It spotlights how despite our temporary existence, we have the ability to make it beautiful & worth while. This theme is represented by the mandala in the film. Monks spend months creating it & once they are done, they immediately clean it up. Absolutely captivating.
