    Deconstruction of Koyaanisqatsi (Godfrey Reggio, 1983) by Natalie Bakeer Koyaansiqatsi is paced and sequenced in an interesting manner. The way the shots are sequenced, affect how people think and feel about the film. The pace of the shots, along with the powerful score, by Phillip Glass, determine the feelings viewers get as they watch it.
