    Toronto Review: Godfrey Reggio Celebrates 30 Years Since 'Koyaanisqatsi' With Extraordinary Philip Glass-Scored 'Visitors'

    Thirty years have passed since the release "Koyaanisqatsi," Godfrey Reggio's first installment in his memorably abstract Qatsi trilogy, which captured the complexity of civilization through a gripping rush of images aided by an equally potent Philip Glass score.
