Koyaanisqatsi

1983, Not rated, 87 min. Directed by Godfrey Reggio.

If proof be needed that the Academy knows nothing, just remember that Godfrey Reggio’s 1982 landmark abstract documentary wasn’t even nominated for Best Documentary. But his groundbreaking exploration of the totality of modern existence (the title being a Hopi word meaning “life out of balance”) reshaped non-narrative cinema. In collaboration with Rocket Cinema, Cloud Tree is bringing in a 5.1 surround stereo to present Philip Glass’ astonishing soundtrack at its absolute best. – Richard Whittaker
