Godfrey Reggio - Koyaanisqatsi (1982)

The first 15 minutes or so gave me the impression that this was going to be boring version of Baraka, but then I was swept off my feet. Philip Glass' score is phenomenal and synches with the action perfectly. The visuals are just, for lack of a better word, stunning. A grand composition of motion, sound and symbolism that touches on everything from nature to American culture. Easily one of the best films I've seen in a while. 10/10
