Into the Inferno (2016)
Not even close to the inferno..
Whilst this film does contain some outstanding images of volcanoes, eruptions and lava, these parts are few and far between.
I was hoping for an exploration of the power and activity of volcanoes around the world, but was only given a glimpse of a few sites, with very little in terms of information about how volcanic action actually arises.
This doc focuses more on worldwide spiritual views around volcanoes, with some superficial information about the effects of eruptions on our planet.
A missed opportunity to discuss some very interesting ideas
I found this documentary to be so obsessed with the idea of ignoring rational thought and 'opening our minds' to intuition, that it manages to lose nearly all substance and fails to discuss or describe any of the concepts in any detail.
I'm a strong believer in mindfulness and reconnecting to our surroundings and the earth on a spiritual level and so I was expecting the really enjoy this film. I did not.
The real irony here is that this film presents some great ideas worth considering, but they are lost in the noise of the presentation.. there's a lot of strange visuals and worryingly unsupported 'scientific' studies, and not a lot of actual discussion to fill 75 minutes.
If you believe you can alter peoples brain waves by staring at them then you'll probably love this film.
