I am an amateur photographer looking for places to go on vacation so I rented this movie. I have been to a few of the locations and to be honest, they could have shown more. The movie is shot using time-lapse techniques to show the clouds rolling across the sky which to me takes away from its goal. Sure it does show different lighting on the scenes but there's something unnatural about it. The more I think about it, the more the goal seemed to about the cinematography and not about the places. If you rent this movie, magnify the beautify of these places by at least 10 times.
By the way, the movie has music and nothing else. Without looking at the menu, you have no idea what place you are even seeing.
Unbelievably amazing scenery with calm and peaceful music. This isn't a video tour guide. It has no commentary, only music over beautiful time-elapsed videography of iconic landscapes. None of the other southwest documentaries that we have watched can even compare to how truly awesome this one is.
