There's no harm in coming in from the sun and contemplating the 99 minutes of Samsara's random images from 25 countries around the world. But if you are seeking, as you might, content or meaning, look elsewhere than this ponderous and pointless collage. Whether the spotlight is on a Buddhist temple high in the Himalayas or on the squatting denizens of an African village, no shot has any purpose. Ron Fricke's film is beautiful in a slick, impersonal, National Geographic kind of way, and the accompanying music (there is no voice-over) is New Age pap, appropriate for a massage or the yoga mat. Better to voyage back to the far superior non-narrative film that this was all lifted from, the 1982 Koyaanisqatsi.
