A Sentence on Powaqqatsi

“Dude, say what you will about the tenets of national socialism. At least it’s an ethos.”

They work hard and they...work hard.

Godfrey Reggio’s Powaqqatsi rather unsubtley but nonetheless powerfully endorses the dirty and glorious life of two-thirds world everymenandwomen suffering their overworked butts off in harmony with one another but in dissonance with the more metropolitan centers also existing in that part of the world to the tune of a marching drum with impressive wide-angle camera shots meshing to create the questionable impression that Marxist humanism is the most humanist humanism in humanity.
