TOP PICK

Samsara

(MPI Media Group)

The visuals in this film from Ron Fricke and Mark Magidson, the guys behind the movies Chronos and Baraka, get trippier as the film progresses. With imagery that ranges from the natural to the surreal, Samsara provides a stunning look at slices of life on five different continents as we see everything from snow-covered Himalayan mountains to chickens heading to slaughter.
