Review
A hit and miss affair which flits frantically from pretention to mildly diverting and back again. 1 Giant Leap is a new take on the Baraka/Koyaanisqatsi kind of film, showing 'highlights' of life on earth, lobbing in some philosophy and popular culture to keep the Red Bull generation interested. Highlights include the ever-sharp insights of Kurt Vonnegut, dub poet Linton Kwesi Johnson and some truly inspired visuals. The downside is the same as with most of these macroscopic attempts to show the way things are: you worry about what the filmmakers have chosen to include and more importantly, what they've left out. I suppose a little LSD might help, but then again, it could make matters worse...
