Anyone seen the QATSI trilogy?
    #966179 - 10/16/02 04:37 PM (14 years, 9 days ago)

I've heard little about these movies, but they seem very intriguing.
I'm speaking of Koyaanisqatsi, Powaqqatsi, and Naqoyqatsi.
They are, respectively, Life out of balance, Life in transformation, and Life in war.
they are all motion video set to soundtracks of Brian Eno. Anyone seen these? what do you think? are they more than just thoughtprovoking? hmmm are they trip-worthy?

Blas'?trid (bl?s tr?d)

    ex.  Blastrid!

ive seen them all and own koyaanisquatsi on vid, guess ive watched it dozens of times. the 2 sequels are good but not even close to the brilliance and beauty of koyaanisquatsi.
the music is by phillip glass, i also have the soundtrack on cd. mr glass has put out a lot of modern classical music, he is rather unique.
as for tripping whilst watching - the first time i saw it i was 18, on acid and sitting in the front row at the cinema......it seemed a good combination of chem/audio and video!
despite the lack of narrative the movies each unfold a story and contain a message, you won't be disappointed if you make an effort to see them.
