Rating: 4.5/5.0

CHICAGO – It is revitalizing to take a break from traditional cinema, and the new artistic film “Samsara” is a non-linear quasi-documentary and travelogue that is a parade of images contemplating existence and the beauty around us. Who doesn’t need that tonic of meditation every so often?

Rating: 4.0/5.0

CHICAGO – The mother and son relationship is perhaps one of the most complicated ever invented.
