Default 'Baraka' -- pre-release buzz

In a retail announce, MPI has said they will bring the acclaimed documentary 'Baraka' to blu-ray on October 28

No tech specs, but the film was one of the few in recent memory be shot in 70mm, so should look great in high-def.

No MSRP either, but stay tuned.

this title has been on my amazon recommendations for YEARS, even now with the dvd out of print, or out of hand, going for 40+ used.

I am SO getting this. I have it on DVD and a BD should be jaw-dropping. Apparently, a sequel to Baraka is coming out soon as well.

Is this a documentary about Baraka from Mortal Kombat? Im a huge fan of Mortal Kombat, they should do a Kung Lao or Mileena.

I am really surprised that there is already such a noteworthy release about Obama.
Guess I'll have to check this out.

Default Awesome, now where is koyaanisqatsi

I am a big fan of Baraka, but in terms of a film with images and music nothing comes close to Koyaanisqatsi. I am pretty sure Ron Fricke had his hand in both films and he is a visual mastermind. However Phillip Glasses haunting score really took koyaanisqatsi to the next level, also it had more of a comprehensible plot(using that word loosely) and message. It is great that Baraka is coming to bd, it should really shine with the hd treatment. Hopefully this is a sign of more quality maybe even obscure gems coming to the format, I will definitly pre order this one.
