New York Times - 09/14/1983
"...A slick, na´ve, chic, maddening, sometimes very beautiful movie....An oddball and...entertaining trip."
Variety - 10/06/1982
"...Awe-inspiring with its sweeping aerial wilderness photography..."
Titled from a Hopi Indian word meaning "life out of balance," this unusual, lyrical film suggests that humanity is an ugly blight on the face of this beautiful planet. An awesome epic undersold by an adjective like "powerful." Sequel: POWAQQATSI.
