Mark Wossname did another film to go with Baraka, although I can't remember what that was called. They're both incredible bits of film.

:D (very happy now).

Mark who now? The thing about Baraka is that you really need to be in the right mood, it's so well shot that you can get lost in it.

I meant Ron Fricke, and the other film is Samsara, due for release next year. Can't remember on which show I saw footage from it, but it looks great.

Any idea on my movie post? :)

It was Michael Stearns who did the music, according to the internet. IMDB doesn't have an answer, but a search for 'baraka soundtrack' doesn't show Mr Glass anywhere..
