A most beautiful masterpiece that gives you hope, love, and happiness!
Anyone with even the slightest interest in the human condition - whether that's on an individual, collective or global level should see this film. I have shown and recommended this film to countless people, all of whom, without exception have loved it. Duncan Bridgeman and Jamie Catto have made a remarkable film that is easily digested in bite size chunks - I have found myself going back to different sections again and again. Through some terrific interviews with well known faces, some incredible music that is worth the purchase of the soundtrack alone (it's AMAZING) and some of the most inspiring, beautiful footage this film communicates beautifully the message that we can all be different, and still be the same. It is the perfect antidote the exclusionary, dictatorial politics of our times and there are many people in powerful positions who would squirm in their seats if shown parts of this DVD. If nothing else, this film can help restore your faith in humanity ...Buy it.
I still have a hard time deciding if I actually like this film or not. It has some very very beautiful visuals and very beautiful music. But I could have done without all the cheesy MTV-style pseudo-philosophizing. The pretentious hipster pontifications of Dennis Hopper and Tom Robbins are particularly irritating in this regard. So irritating, in fact, that they tend to cast a negative pall over the whole film. This movie would have been much more effective if it has been made as a straightforward art film, leaving out all the lame pseudo-mysticism.
