ABOUT SAMSARA:
Prepare yourself for an unparalleled sensory experience. SAMSARA reunites director Ron Fricke and producer Mark Magidson, whose award-winning films BARAKA and CHRONOS were acclaimed for combining visual and musical artistry.
SAMSARA is a Sanskrit word that means “the ever turning wheel of life” and is the point of departure for the filmmakers as they search for the elusive current of interconnection that runs through our lives. Filmed over a period of almost five years and in twenty-five countries, SAMSARA transports us to sacred grounds, disaster zones, industrial sites, and natural wonders. By dispensing with dialogue and descriptive text, SAMSARA subverts our expectations of a traditional documentary, instead encouraging our own inner interpretations inspired by images and music that infuses the ancient with the modern.

Expanding on the themes they developed in BARAKA (1992) and CHRONOS (1985), SAMSARA explores the wonders of our world from the mundane to the miraculous, looking into the unfathomable reaches of man’s spirituality and the human experience. Neither a traditional documentary nor a travelogue, SAMSARA takes the form of a nonverbal, guided meditation. Through powerful images, the film illuminates the links between humanity and the rest of nature, showing how our life cycle mirrors the rhythm of the planet.

Just saw "Looper"

Absolutely fantastic film. I was blown away. Great writing, acting, plot.

Go see this movie. One of the best sci-fi action films ever imo.

Saw "The Hunger Games" at the MIL's on PPV. Don't understand all the hype over this, except from teenagers. The Japanese movie the author ripped off was much better.

Also saw "Bernie" which is based on a real case of a mortician loved by the town killing a nasty rich woman. Nice little film with great acting by Jack Black.

Glad to hear about Looper.

Hunger games is a teenager chick flick. It was ok. Don't walk run to go see Looper.

LOL yeah it's not a great name (sounds like a movie about a caddy) but it actually makes perfect sense in the context of the film.

Easily the best time travel treatment in a movie, with fairly plausible (as much as it can be) treatments of the inevitable paradoxes that arise.

Go see it.

Love Bruce Willis, so I'll catch Looper. I see Taken 2 is coming out this Friday. Hope it's half as good as Taken.

End of watch-4 thumbs up. More realistic than most realize. Could have been filmed in Houston.
Looper-thumbs down. Great premise, could have gone several great ways but didn't.

It wasn't a waste of money but they could have done much better.
