    Tech elements, including music, lensing, costumes and production design are blazingly impressive and strikingly evocative on all levels.

    A film worthy of being displayed on a screen eight stories high.
  3. The big screen -- with that 3-D depth charge -- captures the strange magic of the "big top" Cirque in visual gulps.
  4. It conveys plenty of wonder while mostly avoiding any saccharine preachiness.
  5. A hokey, more-than-a-little-annoying mystical journey of self-discovery.

    Too bad Journey of Man, as a whole, is never as consistently compelling as that one visually arresting scene (with Yves Décoste and Marie-Laure Mesnage)

    The ugly, witless pair of clowns who flit through the movie are emblematic of everything that is wrong with this dull, monumentally pretentious mess.
