Baraka review

A sleepy monkey nodding off segues into a solar eclipse – no, this isn’t 2001: A Space Odyssey the remake, although it has similar pace and scope. Instead, Ron Fricke’s 1992 documentary is a gorgeous travelogue shot in 24 exotic countries across 14 months on 77mm film stock, the idea being to map the interconnectivity between man and planet.

In practice, this means stunning landscapes, scurrying cityscapes and naked people praying.

Depending on your tolerance for the aforementioned it’s either an awesome vision of the world in all its time-lapsed wonder or visual whale music.
