Anyone saw that movie?
I had seen it at the theatre and finally found it on DVD.

I think it's one of the best movies I've seen.

I consider this movie more as a " meditative" movie. It's about this guy who uses a normal hand held camera and goes in Toronto, Las Vegas, Switzerland and India. He tries to find out what makes people happy and what they do in their search for happiness.

It's more a documentary then a movie and what I liked the most about it is that the author uses narration but never to judge. There is not a lot of intervention from the author and he lets us observe and think about what we see.

So in all and all it's a great movie with a thousand reflections on us, others and what are our goals in life.

Anyone else seen it?

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

here is some more info from imdb.com

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0332626/

"In a society that appears determined to keep us alienated from our true self, knowledge of reality achieved through personal experience or visionary states seems to be a fit subject only for media giggles or academic smugness. In his experimental three-hour documentary that took ten years to complete, Gambling, Gods and LSD, Canadian filmmaker Peter Mettler wants to change this.

Part travelogue and part photographic essay, the film takes us on a "journey of discovery" to different parts of the globe observing the different ways in which people seek transcendence. During the course of the three hours, we are presented with a dazzling display of images and sounds of nature and humanity: alpine fog, boys playing cricket, running water, a crippled beggar looking at the camera, a moving train, a jet plane reaching skyward among others. Mettler interviews biochemists, heroin addicts, gamblers, born-again Christians, and 97-year old Albert Hoffman, the inventor of LSD, each seeking to express the meaning of their life but ideas are not fully explored. "
