If the makers of Baraka, billed as ”A World Beyond Words,” had had any sense of humor, they would have called it Mondo Mondo. It’s a lavishly filmed catalog of everything under the sun to the accompaniment of America’s favorite world music: dervishes and Yanomamo, the Balinese monkey chant and Japanese commuters — scenic wonders and technology’s terrors, speeded up à la Koyaanisqatsi. With no subtitles or narration to get in the way — or diminish its New Age sanctimoniousness — Baraka is a moving issue of National Geographic that’s not very moving. C
