“Samsara” falters when its images are obviously staged or engineered for shock or narrative value, and Fricke's intensions are not always clear: shots of natural disasters are followed by depictions of aristocratic opulence, but to what end? “Samsara” occasionally seems more interested in finding great images than maintaining its thematic integrity. All of this makes “Samsara” undeniably beautiful but frustrating — it's messaging is not always as clear as its breathtaking vistas.
— George Lang
