    I have that double sidcset. Only watched a few scenes of koyaanisqatsi.
    It is a very mesmorising "film" only There is no dialogues just a montage of different scenes that is all. As I haven't gone totally through them, it is hard to say but from what I ahve seen definately worth it.

    Watching Koyaanisqatsi was a life changing experience for me, and it had nothing to do with the fact that I had downed 50 magic mushies beforehand.

    It's a very profound film, but you have to be in the right frame of mind to see it :smoke: Sort of makes you question your existence if you know what I mean (probably not !)

    Powaqqatsi is just as beautiful to look at but is less profound, IMHO.

    There is also a third, naqoyqatsi, but this is an entirely different kettle of fish. I think it is on r1 only at the mo.

    Also good to get if you like the music of Phillip Glass.

    I've seen both. Koyaanisqatsi is a very mesmerising film with a fantastic soundtrack by Philip Glass. However, I think if you don't like the music, you won't like the film, as it is an integral part of the movie.
    With the clever use of time-lapse, it's certainly an experience.
