This is totally unrelated to investing but I just came across this phenomenal documentary (in my opinion) and thought some of the members of this group might enjoy it (my facebook friends weren't too interested haha).

Though I'm guessing some of you might have already seen it as it's very old.

 

The following is a description about it:

 

"Baraka has no plot, no storyline, no actors, no dialogue nor any voice-over. Instead, the film uses themes to present new steps and evoke emotion through pure cinema. Baraka is a kaleidoscopic, global compilation of both natural events and by fate, life and activities of humanity on Earth."

You can also watch it in 720p!

 

There's also a sequel that came out this August; Samsara.

I haven't watched Baraka yet, but I saw Samsara twice!

 

Freaking awesome, the DVD comes out in January.

 

I actually learned about Baraka after I watched the trailer for Samsara and looked up its wikipedia page.

 

I really wish I'd heard of Samsara this summer. Judging from the trailer; it seems like it would have been amazing to watch in the theater.

 

They've done a ridiculously good job but I kinda wish these documentaries were narrated b/c I'm quite curious about what exactly some of these locations, etc. are.

Thanks. The Samsara trailer looks great. Definitely going to watch it.

 

Here's an extensive list of documentaries, some are very good:

Baraka is not on the list, but is on my list of the best documentaries. If you liked Home and Baraka, you might like Koyaanisqatsi.

Great list! Thanks for that. :) Some of those are my favorites; The Elegant Universe, Cosmos, Inside Job, Senna, Enron..., etc.

I'm definitely gonna go through the rest and check 'em out.
