First one I saw was Koyaanisqatsi... I believe this to be the first of the set of films. Not sure if it's vital what order you watch them in anyways. This film here has altered the way I look at film in general. This film is devoid of characters, plot, dialogue etc. It is merely a collection of images and music. The soundtrack is brilliant... ghostly, dreamlike. The images are mostly of natural settings around the world. Slow motion techniques follow clouds, mountains, waterfalls.. just captivating and moving images. It sort of gives the eye a more detailed look... sort of magnified view of the world around us.. if that makes sense. This is easily one of the best films I've seen in who knows how long. It's very inspiring to me.
So... I'm looking forward to the next two.
not to be a spoiler, but it's not quite the same.
i've always felt the 3rd one was some american army brain washing propaganda.
