A disturbing and visually stunning look at a modern society built on perpetual warfare, Godfrey Reggio's remarkable film makes its way to DVD courtesy of Miramax. Presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen, the image is crisp and clear. Naqoyqatsi is a film in which the visual representation is essential, and the near flawless transfer makes viewing a compelling experience. Composer Philip Glass' worldly score perfectly compliments the remarkable and sometimes obscure imagery, and his collaboration with acclaimed cellist Yo-Yo Ma is both moving and at times unnerving. Though many may assume that a film such as this speaks well enough for itself, some extra features offered on this disc offer great insight into director Reggio's vision and the manner in which it was executed. Though the all-too-brief "Life is War" featurette offers some interesting words by executive producer Steven Soderbergh, it's the N.Y.U. panel discussion that offers the most interesting bonus material here. Mediated by New York Times Arts and Entertainment Editor John Rockwell, the Q & A session finds the director, editor Jon Kane, and composer Glass discussing the importance of the titles of each film in the trilogy, the development of and difficulties in creating such an experimental trilogy, and the director and composer's working relationship, in addition to much more. A discussion with Glass and Ma is also fascinating as the two discuss how music and imagery were combined and how they collaborated with one another. Trailers for the other two films in the trilogy round out the extras.
