Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Since we can't all attend Burning Man, we can be thankful for "Spark," which is probably the next best thing.
Rotten: More time spent on the ground, and with the attendees, would have been ideal, especially since this may be as close as many viewers get to joining in.
Fresh: As an official history, Spark shines adequate light; I just wish it had spent a little more time on the shadows.
Rotten: Perhaps most surprising, even the festival footage is ho-hum. We feel a distance, instead of being flies on the wall. (Or should we say, on the desert floor?)
Really interesting, even for a non-Burner!
I was dragged to this movie by some friends who have been to Burning Man before, and, though I had no previous knowledge, I really enjoyed it! It's an amazing filmic experience, following interesting artists and the people that founded the festival. Incredible footage of the art, awesome music, really interesting stories. I'm surprised to say I loved it!
Great movie that captures the story, the people, and the feel of Burning Man - but without getting sand everywhere.
