Naqoyqatsi (2002)

Number of Times Seen – 1 (18 Mar 2021)

Brief Synopsis – Third film in the trilogy of documentary’s without any dialogue.

My Take on it – Another complete waste of time as they continue with the same idea of the previous two films.

The ability to shows various landscapes, events and places can be nice to look at, but the fact that it all seems so rando without any real connection between the various scenes makes it even more difficult to watch.

The attempt to show how the advancement of technology has dragged the world down is the only thing that I could glean from this film.

Since there is no story, it’s really difficult to not be bored while watching 90 minutes of footage in a pointless and aimless fashion.

I’m sure that there are many viewers out there who can find understanding and meaning in these pictures, but I am not one of them and can’t believe that I spent nearly 5 hours watching the three films in this series.

The way that the movie gives us a mintage of picture and videos is great from a technical perspective, but the lack of meaning or narrative here makes it even more frustrating to watch these kind of shots because they feel as if they have no real meaning in the way that it is all presented to us.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The film’s title has three meanings according to the closing credits. They are (1) a life of killing each other (2) war as a way of life and (3) civilized violence (interpretation). (From IMDB)

Rating – Razzie Worthy (2/10)
