No plot, no talking, but does have a message and a dash of humor, one of the best films ever made and certainly one of the most unique, best seen on 70 mm film http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/eek.gif. It's a montage of images, beautiful and ugly, jungle and city. Although it's slow paced and unusual, if you give it your full attention I think it could change your life or at least leave your head spinning for hours afterwards.

You know, you can get lots of reviews at www.imdb.com , among other places. 51% of IMDBers gave it a 10/10, including me, though a lot of others gave it a 1/10, dragging down its rating. One IMDBer's summary was especially good:

Make sure you rent/buy the new anamorphic version rather than the older nonanamorphic version.
