It’s hard to categorise this movie. It’s sooort of a documentary, but there is no real plot or dialogue here. It honestly is just a collection of images. But those images will leave you awestruck.
Baraka, made in 1992, consists of sequences of shots that take you to a whole mess of locales around the planet. Everything you see is meticulously shot and set to stirring music. One minute you are looking at ancient ruins of southeast Asia, the next you are soaring over the crowded streets of Manhattan.
It’s the perfect zone out on the couch movie (if you know what I mean). It will leave you going, “whaaaaaaaaat”.
