I don't know how you can consider Baraka your favourite film, when its only message is that all religions across the world are equal and equally deep. Orthodoxy is presented side by side with New Guineans dancing around idols and Muslims at prayer, as if our religion is just one option among many.
Baraka, the word, means "the essence of life". Baraka places humans in the context of wondrous creation showing the beauty, majesty and mystery of nature juxtaposed against its wild and destructive power. That's what I got from the film, I never viewed it as a message, or it's only message, was one where all religions were equal and as such equally deep.
Baraka is Arabic for "blessing," though it can degenerate to almost animism, people touching holy persons, relics, shrines etc. for "baraka." If done in Faith, that is one thing. Done like magic, it's another: Muslims will try to get qurban/antidoron, for instance, for its baraka, having no knowledge or belief in its connection to the Eucharist and Our Lord.
