What is that movie with a weird name ... ?

Okay, this is driving my bananas ....

I'm trying to remember the name of this movie. It's a movie I've never seen. All I know about it is that I think it's a sort of visual collage with music. I remember picking up a VHS copy at a video store at some time in the last couple of years, but I think it was a "for sale" copy and not a "for rent" copy so I didn't get it. But I've always wanted to see it.

I believe it is a movie held in relatively high regard. Seems like when I held that VHS copy in my hand there were review quotes to the effect that it was a "visual and auditory feast for the senses" (or some crap like that). I had thought there was a Criterion edition on DVD, but after a search on Criterion's website I guess I'm wrong on that. In fact, I am not certain the movie is on DVD at all.

The title is one word. Nevertheless, it is a long title (maybe 10 letters or so). It's a very strange, rather nonsensical word. I think it starts with a "K", and it may contain something like a double-Q ("QQ").

It's like Kosaqquayanti ... or SOMETHING like that! I've been typing all kinds of combinations of those letters into IMDB for an hour and I just can't find it. But I first heard of it years ago right here on DVD Talk.

It may have a sequel with an equally weird name.

Heeeeeelllllpppp

This may be it, Philip Glass' "Koyaanisqatsi"
