    I absolutely loved it. I thought I would die of boredom during the first minute, but then I calmed down, and was soon mesmerized by Andy's work. Watch this!

    Fred Frith's lovely and subdued score is a perfect accompaniment.
  2. As the film's images accumulate, the movie becomes a sustained and ultimately refreshing meditation on surrender to the idea of temporality.

    In its own quiet, voluptuous way, Rivers and Tides, an unpretentiously brilliant documentary, uses the work of Scottish sculptor Andy Goldsworthy to open up the hidden drama of the natural universe.
