I was wondering why it seemed kinda dated...it was filmed in 1984. Not bad for its time.

One of my favorites! Similar to a previous film by cinematographer Ron Fricke, Chronos is a non-narrative abstract film featuring many panoramic sights from around the civilized world - ancient and modern. Originally filmed for IMAX, this movie needs to be seen with a surround-sound system to allow soundtrack composer Michael Stearns' amazing music to envelop the viewer/listener.

Nice cinematography, but probably better watched on an IMAX screen than a TV. Basically this film is a less compelling but better photographed version of "Koyannasquatsi" (sp?), even including a few direct steals of some of the more famous shots from that film (Grand Central Station and its escalators, for example).
