    Hi, I need some help identifying a film so I was wondering if one of you guys/gals could help me out?

    I only caught the tail-end of it but it was shown on Film4 in early 2010. As I remember, it only seemed to comprise of a lot of shots of American landscape. I think one shot was looking out the window of a car that was driving through the desert.

    It had an American guy speaking over the film with some thought provoking words.

    Sorry my description is so vague but hopefully someone can identify the film. Thanks in advance !

    Hi zzZZAA,

    I checked out that film but it doesn't seem to be the one that I can remember.

    The one I'm thinking of seemed to have quite a philosophical commentary and kind of left you questioning/thinking about your own life after watching it. I don't think it was necessarily a road trip movie but it featured a scene with a car driving through the desert.

    Thanks for your help anyway!

    I'm wondering if the film could be Koyaanisqatsi? (Life out of Balance)

    A Francis Ford Coppola film.

    There was a follow up of sorts some years later called Powaqqatsi.

    Both were directed by Godfrey Reggio.

    It sounds like the end of Blade Runner.

    Which of the many versions?
    Original version
    Director's cut
    Cinematographer's cut
    Director's 2nd cut
    Cut by the lady who made the tea
    Director's 3rd cut including another 3 seconds of footage that explains all of the mysteries

    I have vague memories of the start of 21 Grams being a bit like that.
