'Samsara' -- 3 stars

PG-13; 1:39 running time Gorgeous and a tiny bit bubble-headed, full of ancient ruins and marvelous faces and time-lapse landscapes of crazed LA freeways in action, "Samsara" takes its title from a Sanskrit word that translates, roughly, to "the ever-turning wheel of life." The wheel spins; humankind's stewardship of Earth continues to provoke debate and wonderment and gradual or rapid ruination. If there's a moral here, it is simply: Be careful. "Samsara" may not give audiences much more than an expansive nonverbal variation on the old Yakov Smirnoff catchphrase. But honestly: What a planet! -- Michael Phillips Read the full "Samsara" movie review
