Customers who viewed this item also viewed
Sigur Rós gave a dozen film makers the same modest budget and asked them to create whatever came into their head when they listened to songs from the band's album Valtari. All 16 Valtari films are collected together for a limited edition (2,500) DVD known as the Valtari Film Experiment. This DVD release includes all 14 films commissioned by the band, alongside the two winning entries from the parallel public competition, plus three additional making-of features.

There are some truly amazing moments on here and I would have gladly given it 5 stars if there were any sound mastering to the DVD. Their is only one "audio track" to select and it's a stereo LPCM output. This results in both sound deterioration at the higher decibel climaxes of many of the songs and also unmetered sound output from some of the videos that employ narration as accompaniment to the Valtari soundtrack. For something so beautiful in both music and visual composition, this seems like an oversight. I would love to see this in Bluray format someday!*
Review in Summary: Eye Candy for Ear Candy! Amazing as is, but could have been a lot better if it was utilizing some form of DTS or Dolby mastering (preferably DTS Master or True Dolby HD...but really anything would have been better than LPCM).
*Note: There is a bluray version of this listed on Amazon, but be careful as it is a Region B/2 Bluray and will not work unless you have a region free player (which I do not have so I stuck with DVD).

I think it's not original because when I opened it, it was terrible. All broken and the quality is so bad.
