Little replay value here, but, upon first viewing, Manakamana makes for a trance-inducing, indescribably moving and undeniably human documentary. I don't want to spoil the premise, but lets just say that a vast majority of people will hateLittle replay value here, but, upon first viewing, Manakamana makes for a trance-inducing, indescribably moving and undeniably human documentary. I don't want to spoil the premise, but lets just say that a vast majority of people will hate this film and probably dip out 5-10 minutes in. I don't blame them. It is not for everyone. Patient viewers will find themselves in rapture for what is easily my favorite documentary of 2014 so far. This film pushes the boundaries of what we can consider a 'narrative'. The movie preys on our socially analytical nature as observers, voyeurs more like it. I dare you to sit through the whole film. Don't see it with friends or other people. You may be influenced to make distracting conversation. Engage this in your own quiet way and test yourself to see how far you can go without a break. My eyes were glued to the screen. I didn't look away once. Expand

Pretty neat concept. Made me think of James Benning in a cable car. If you like his films, you will most definitely like this one. Bring your coffee!!!
