    I was transfixed by Samsara. While not perfect, the production values were incredibly high and the vision, strong. There were many touching (and spiritual) moments of the West portrayed - a tattooed father tenderly cuddling and cooing over his child, the surreal, jarring and utterly compelling sight of the performance artist and I also remember thinking how stunning Los Angeles looked from an aerial point of view... Also, if you think "the film's view of the Third World is often fixed and patronising", then it could also be said that your use of the "third world" is equally patronising.
