koyaansiqatsi is one of those films that you can watch over and over and each time find yourself lost deep in thought and contemplation over its meaning. The fact is that it does have one, but it is as fluid and open to interpretation as a poem. I can't possibly impress my own ideas of the film upon you, however, I think you should watch it and if it is interesting to you and leaves you wanting to discuss your feelings, then I think you should watch it again at some point, because you will most likely see it differently, and understand details that you missed the first time. Additionally, if you read about the film after seeing it, you begin to understand the significance of the locations and the reason that they appear in the film. koyaanisqatsi took 3 years to shoot and 3 years to collaborate the film shots with Phillip Glass, the composer. It is truly a masterpiece in every way.
