Samsara
« on: January 18, 2013, 04:39:08 PM »

Just finished watching Samsara

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0770802/

Some parts are really LLVJ like.

Interesting, but not as mind blowing as the trailer led me to believe.

Shot on 70mm - a bit flashy at times. Couldn't help but notice the mention of 8K and 4K processing in the credits.

LLVJ??

I guess the biggest problem is finding a screening at a cinema that still has a 70mm projection capability.

We have at least one here in Sydney (although Samsara is not screening there) where I saw Baraka a few times.

I also saw a special screening of the last remaining 70mm print of Lawrence of Arabia.  It got one last airing prior to being shipped to the private collection of Stephen Spielberg.

I enjoyed Samsara quite a bit - my favourite section was the zombie guy :)

LLVJ - Luminous Landscape Video Journal. Namibia for example. And I actually liked the shots from LLVJ better. Yes, the Zombie was cool. The appearance of the Tollund man was a bit unexpected. The broken dolls (read with a hole) required a long explanation for my 9 yo daughter ;-)
