Naqoyqatsi

Naqoyqatsi is a second-rate final film in the trilogy that also includes Koyaanisqatsi and Powaqqatsi. I think Godfrey Reggio thought he was branching out into something new here by using digitally manipulated archive material and CGI, but actually the film comes across as tired and pedestrian. Five minutes of it might be tolerable in the Tate Gallery out of curiousity at the ‘pretty patterns’, but it’s nothing compared to the ground-breaking Koyaanisqatsi or its first sequel. I turned it off before the end out of boredom.
