As I suspected, the new Godfrey Reggio / Phillip Glass movie Visitors is more an art piece than any sort of conventional movie. Indeed their prior collaboration, the seminal film Koyaanisqatsi [see post], is much more a linear tale than Visitors. I found Visitors to be intriguing, but it hardly blew me away. There were a couple rather well-turned moments where it touched the depths it was trying to reach as a whole.
And I will say I’ve never seen human fingers look so alien. The faces look almost alien too, which I think is one of the points the movie is trying to make. Though not a great film, it is unforgettable. Also to the movie’s credit, I was surprised when it ended that it was over so quickly. Make sure to visit the website first and watch the trailer to see if this is up your alley. A marginal thumb’s up; 6/10
