Baraka (1992)

Firs of all this is a very great movie, but there is a problem. I don't know what to say about it. I really don't. I have been thinking what to write here for few days now, and I've got nothing worth reading. So no matter how badly I'll explain this master piece , this is still good , and I recommend you to see it.
Now for the movie. It is a documentary, and I know that you think "boring" every time you hear documentary, but trust me on this one, it is amazing . There is no voice that would start bugging after five minutes. This is not about some bugs or "how do cats take a crap" stuff. No this is... well... it's about everything. Probably.
 It is actually hard for me to compare this movie to anything else, i haven't seen documentaries that wouldn't be horrible and boring as watching hair grow on your arm, so to me this just looks like something that is out of this world.Could be used to show to aliens , so they would know what we are. The shots are all beautiful, the lighting falls perfect and everything there looks so good. A big part here plays the soundtrack. It is so smooth and relaxing, that after few minutes you might start loving every living thing on the planet, except for French, you can still hate those.
There is a down side. As this is a documentary, it is also a sleeping pill. Every picture , every note, every feel you get from this thing will make you want to sleep. I myself, who never falls asleep during a movie, blacked out right at the moment the thing ended. I went down to a intergenerational discusion with myself, god and cod on is there a reason on living without living, or are we all just mare parts of one great continuousness. For short ,  I was dreaming big time. And so will you. So grab a pillow, a blanket , blue balloon  and prepare for a great movie. This is surely something to see in your life.
