Directed by Godfrey Reggio with music by Philip Glass, the film digs into the relationships between man, technology, and nature through a collection of time-lapse photography of a number of landscapes across the United States. A Hopi word, Koyaanisqatsi means "crazy life; life in turmoil; life out of balance; life disintegrating; a state of life that calls for another way of living." In other words -- it's a film that might be almost three decades old, but it's got some modern relevance without blue aliens running around.
And -- oh, great internet! -- it's now available for free. So, cuddle up with your honey this holiday weekend and invest your time in a classic.
