Samsara

9/10
Drama . Documentary . Music
 

Samsara is a word that describes the ever turning wheel of life. It is a concept both intimate and vast - the perfect subject for filmmakers Ron Fricke and Mark Magidson, whose previous collaborations include Chronos and Baraka, and who, in the last 20 years, have travelled to over 58 countries together in the pursuit of unique imagery. Samsara takes the form of a nonverbal, guided meditation that will transform viewers in countries around the world as they are swept along a journey of the soul. Through powerful images pristinely photographed in 70mm and a dynamic music score, the film illuminates the links between humanity and the rest of the nature, showing how our life cycle mirrors the rhythm of the planet.

More Info:
  • Joe Williams

    With a title taken from an American Indian word for "life out of balance," Godfrey Reggio's wordless documentary lured dreamers into the sacred cave of cinema, where they ingested the serial music of Philip Glass and the time-lapse imagery of cinematographer Ron Fricke.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    It is the kind of experience you simply sink into.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Katie Walsh

    Simply put, Samsara tells the story of our world, but onscreen, it is so much more than that.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Shawn Levy

    The word 'samsara' means 'continuous flow of life' in Tibetan, and Fricke and company surely experienced that sensation in making the film, which took them to 25 countries in a span of five years.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Phelim O'Neill

    It may be just more of the same from Fricke, but with his unique process, another incredible-looking lap around the world is more than welcome.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    It demands to be experienced on its own terms or not at all, which creates a significant level of resistance in the contemporary media marketplace – but may also be a source of counterintuitive appeal.

    Salon.com Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    A spool of arresting, beautifully composed shots without narration or dialogue, Samsara is an invitation to watch closely and to suspend interpretation (another notion Sontag might have approved).

    The New York Times Full Review
  • David Ehrlich

    A darker and more ambitious meditation on impermanence, Samsara relies on blunt force and unforgettable imagery, overcoming the hazy logic of Fricke's editing to earn your awe.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Achingly beautiful and visually transfixing, Samsara offers a transporting vacation from the usual multiplex fare. It's a movie to get lost in.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Samsara is gorgeous. And sometimes, depending on expectations, looks are enough.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    What does it all mean? I'm not convinced that Fricke's movies are much more than exalted travelogues, but you certainly feel as if you've been somewhere after you've seen one of them.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Budd Wilkins

    Ron Fricke's film is a brightly hued bauble, fit for rapturous contemplation.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Farran Smith Nehme

    The drawbacks to this often rhapsodically beautiful film lie not in the journey itself, but in the preachy detours taken along the way.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Guy Lodge

    A semi-sequel to the acclaimed "Baraka," Fricke delivers another stunning spectacle in 70mm, interspersed with some tiresome sermonising.

    Empire Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Oddly, there isn't as much originality as you'd expect from a global search for meaning.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Sam Wigley

    Jaw-dropping in colour and splendour, but if the constant awe gets a bit tiring, at its best you can genuinely feel some great wheel turning.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    The images wash over you - lush, gorgeous, impeccably framed - just as they did in Ron Fricke's wordless meditation "Baraka" (1992).

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Walter Addiego

    The film is implicitly advocating a New Age or holistic perspective, with a dollop of Eastern religion added for good measure. (The title is Sanskrit meaning "wheel of life.")

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • John Anderson

    It's a purely sensory journey until the pictures start making editorial comments, in slaughterhouses and garbage dumps.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    Samsara is as frustrating as it is beautiful, which is saying a lot because this is a film laced with exquisite images.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Mark Holcomb

    The film's imagery is epic and trance-inducing. It's the "guided" part where Samsara stumbles.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Randy Cordova

    The film winds up being a collection of striking visuals without any emotional heft.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    It seems to me that since "Koyaanisqatsi" in 1982, for which Fricke served as the director of photography, every other film of this sort has been repetition.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Mark Feeney

    The result is like an issue of National Geographic gone mad.
