Format: DVD
I have rated this dvd 1 star, not the film itself. The film is a masterpeice, and an important piece of art. This dvd version of it is a piece of horse poop!
If you have never seen this film, I suppose the way it is framed in this version might not really bother you, but if you actually CARE to see the film as was originally presented, THIS ISN'T IT!
I am not sure exactly HOW they managed to frame this transfer so poorly, but if ineptitude is a virtue, these folks go to the head of the class.
I won't get into the techical terms of aspect ratio, framing, and the like, but suffice it to say, this release LACKS a good amount of the original image. The image on the screen might be presented in the original apsect, but the framing of that aspect was done in such a way as to "zoom" too far in, thus erradicating, in my estimation, approx. 15-20% of the original image. In a film like Koyaanisqatsi, where the artist's framing of the image is so critical, changing the original image by framing it this way is unforgivable...well...maybe merely a waste of time and money.
The frustrating thing for me was that the "full screen" vhs release actually gives the viewer a closer approximation of the original!
I won't go on and on about it, but like I said before; If you want the original, you're going to have to wait. I suppose there is a laser disc version out there that is framed properly, but that's not really much help!
Save your dough!

The movie itself deserves to be seen, being what could be called "State-of-the-art Photography in motion".

A must have for those who enjoy the visual arts.

There is no singular meaning for this movie. "To some its a work of art, to others it's a piece of s$#@," was what I believe Godfrey Reggio stated during his interview for this movie. Watch this movie if you want to expand your mind and get a different concept on life as a whole. Watch this movie if you decide to go get stoned and just want a visual thriller. Don't go for crappy "action-packed" violent movies that don't entail any sort of useful value in your already meaningless life. Try and learn a thing or two, and watch this movie. You won't be disapointed. (If you are disapointed, your a moron and didn't deserve to see this work of unique art in the first place.)

I saw this movie my senior year in highschool, back in 2002. I can honestly say that i have never been moved in such a way by a film as i have been by Koyaanisqatsi. It is unfortunate that so many people my age don't take time to seek out other things aside from whats on the surface of popular trends. The film is great because it lets you interpret it in any way you like. To me, it showed how nature is at a standstil in comparison to the constant move of human life and technology. Nature doesn't have to remodel or update every year to keep up with people. We have moved so high up above it we forget its there, and without it, we can't exist. I will say this, you have to have an open mind in order to truley appreciate this film. Otherwise it will blow right by you and you wont understand it.

This movie is amazing. It's not for everybody or for everyday viewing, but it is truly an experience. In life, there always seem to be those moments when the clouds look just perfect, or the sky, the horizon, the mountains, something around you looks more alive then you've ever noticed before. Even though, at that moment, you fumble around with you camera trying to save the beauty you see for posterity; the pictures never come out looking like you remembered. Somehow, this film managed to catch all of those moments and I am forever grateful.

It is hard to believe this movie is already over 20 years old. I remember seeing it on the big screen when it was first released. It was an unexpected experience to say the least. At the time, this movie left a strong impression on me, not simply a particular image or sequence, but rather the duality of the images and music. That duality is inherent throughout this movie; an observation made only on repeated viewing.
There is the obvious nature vs technology duality. In parallel, this duality can be expressed as god-made vs man-made. There are the old world vs the new world, Hopi cave drawings vs high-tech cinematography and music (the movie we are watching), communication by drawing with coal vs television commercials, ocean waves swelling and receding, cities rising and falling, deserts eroding while factories assemble cars and package massive amounts of food, insurpassable terrain and numerous roads, cars, and airplanes, the slow tide of nature and the fastlane happening all at once. And in the midst of these dual forces is man, a product of the natural world creating the technological world. It is rather like the yin and yang, yang the primary color at present. Technology has usurped first place in defining the world around us and nature is merely a prelude. We are increasingly defined by our technological achievement rather than by our nature. We are gradually defined by our creation, perhaps as god is defined by us. Yet echoes of nature pulse within the concrete fortresses of our technolgy. The roads are like arteries pumping red and white cells to and fro, the factories generate food to help us survive, we record our deeds on film for posterity (the very movie we are watching is a testament of sorts),and we aspire to break free of gravity's tethers reaching for whatever lies ahead.
