I have seen KOYAANISQATSI. It was interesting, if not a little boring. Watching it fast forwarded is effective, unless you like the music.

Great time-lapse work.

Copola only produced it.

I've seen the entire trilogy, including Naqoyqatsi, all directed by Godfrey Reggio. http://www.koyaanisqatsi.org/

If you like these I highly suggest Baraka (1992) shot and directed by Ron Fricke (cinematographer of Koyaanisquatsi). It?s available on DVD and you can rent it via Netflix or purchase on Amazon, etc. Shot on 70mm, Baraka is one of my all time favorite films and a must see for anyone who believes that film is destined for more than just commercialism. I won't say too much, but the film is spectacularly shot and edited. Luckily for us, Mr. Fricke is following up Baraka with a film titled Samsara. Hopefully it will be out soon.

Interesting side note: Fricke is credited on IMDB as the DP for Sicily and Thailand sequences for Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0294825/

I didn't see them in their first run, but ended up seeing a back to back screening of both later on in college and was riveted.

I think with Koyaaniquatsi especially - I found it incredibly touching, moving. It's not a narrative film, it's not a documentary. It's sort of a story of a moment in the history of Earth and it's fascinating. It's not Star Wars - it's not The Conversation - it's its own thing - so check it out if you haven't and just go along for the ride.

I think Lucas and Copola are really only there in name only to get it seen like the various "Quentin Tarrantino presents" films. I doubt they had anything to do much with the creation of the film - but I don't know.
