WATER­MARK ★★★★ Di­rected by Ed­ward Bur­tyn­sky

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - FILM -

Bur­tyn­sky is jus­ti­fi­ably fa­mous for his huge, im­pos­ing photographs of in­dus­trial land­scapes. Here, work­ing with co-di­rec­tor Baich­wal, he turns his at­ten­tion to man’s in­ter­ac­tions with wa­ter. Some­how or other, form and in­tent mesh to­gether ut­terly seam­lessly. That is to say vir­tu­ally ev­ery shot is beau­ti­ful and vir­tu­ally ever shot ad­dresses eco­log­i­cal con­cerns. We see vast damns, crowds at the beach, crash­ing rivers. Stands com­par­i­son with the likes of Godfrey Reg­gio’s Koy­aanisqatsi. Club, IFI, Dublin, 90 min
