Editorial Reviews


Taos is warm, funny, insightful, poignant, and very, very timely. In a world which has been dominated by a focus on how much money we make, first-time director Brandon Schmid has fashioned an important film about being who we really are. --Stephen Simon --Co-Founder, Gaiam's Spiritual Cinema Circle

A powerful film with stunning editing and outdoor visuals. Ben McAllister s score is also a plus. --Warren Etheredge --President LockSpring Pictures and Faculty at The Film School

Product Description

A powerful personal journey, TAOS tells the story of John Wahlberg (RIB HILLIS), a young corporate attorney in a large Washington D.C. law firm considering an investment banking job on Wall Street, who gains a new perspective on both his life and his passions after his car breaks down outside of Taos, New Mexico. Lost in the high desert mesa, old wounds resurface and new perspectives emerge as John treads a razor s edge to choose between the recent past and his future life.<P> TAOS is a story about living in modern America and the choices we face every day to balance our commitments to family, work and ourselves, while dealing with unexpected loss and circumstances outside of our control. TAOS was filmed primarily on location in and around Taos, New Mexico and highlights the natural beauty of the region, including exclusive footage from the Taos Pueblo.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Movie Makes me Want to Visit Taos January 3, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This movie is deep. Have Kleenex handy. Its touching and magical in its gentle journey through one man's self-realization. Cleverly directed, charmingly performed, it is a work of art. Taos is refreshingly un-hollywood in its pacing and truly original in its execution, yet its a story that is deeply relevant to all of us.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brings me home December 9, 2010
This film has beautiful photography and poignant meaning. The acting is b-level but the storyline and landscape make this an enjoyable view. I appreciate this film for its history of Taos and the juxtaposition created between city and simple life. I give this film a thumbs-up for anyone who has an interest in Taos or is looking to question there everyday working lives and the "rat race" that is so commonly found in larger cities.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Lucid Commentary on our Times February 18, 2010
By Anh
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Not knowing what to expect, TAOS surprised me in many ways, most of all in its earnest storyline of a young man facing difficult questions of morality when presented with a golden opportunity. I was also surprised with the quality of the filmmaking from an apparently first-time director. If you're looking for a great independent feature that deals with current issues and presents a clear dichotomy of our 'official' capital Washington DC in transposition of Taos and the surrounding community, the film will be an enjoyable surprise.
