Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Reggio's work may be mesmerizing and technically engrossing, but it's also narrowly self-righteous. Instead of expanding our consciousness, he instead seeks to squeeze it into his point of view through a movie that tries to tell us what to think."
‑ Mark Bourne, DVDJournal.com
"An exquisite combination of sound and vision."
‑ David N. Butterworth, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"'shows the consequences of what we have done in the past and the danger of where we are heading'"
‑ Derek Smith, Cinematic Reflections
"You'd be hard-pressed to find another movie that conveys the contrasts of life in the modern world more effectively."
‑ Brian Webster, Apollo Guide
