  The Burning Man - Feature of Worthy News
The Burning Man is a no-holds-barred New Age "Woodstock" style festival, where neo-pagans, wiccans, transvestitie entertainers, and back-slidden Christians go to trance, perform rituals, burn sacrifices to pagan gods and goddesses, dance in the nude, engage in sex, and otherwise "express" themselves and become one with Gaia.
The Burning Man itself is a 40-foot-high effigy of the "Spirit Cave Man" (sacred to local Indians and New Agers) which is torched, together with just about everything else, at the close of the festivities.
From Burning Man festivals to public school Environmental Education to faddish television good-guys, today’s generation is bombarded with a New Age Occultianity (western Christian beliefs mixed with occultism) that popularize the supernatural.

 Reason magazine -- February 2000, Burning Man Grows Up by Brian Doherty
Burning Man is a quintessentially freaky West Coast event, appealing mostly to a self-consciously underground group of artists, digerati, and tribally minded hipsters from California, Nevada, and the Pacific Northwest.
Burning Man is still in theory dedicated to both "radical self-expression" and "community"--two things that governments and their rules aren't necessarily best at furthering.

 VRMAG - BURNING MAN FESTIVAL, ONE MAN'S EXPERIENCE
Burning Man, the annual arts festival and bacchanal held in the Nevada desert, has reached mythical status, and the uninitiated are curious.
Contrast this with the experience at Burning Man. At Burning Man next to a piece of art you might see a bucket of wet paint, a paint brush, and a sign that reads "Please do not paint the art." At Burning Man art is not an object art is the infrastructure.
The burning of the Man means something different to everyone but in general it serves the same function as the burning of effigies in old pagan rituals.

Burning Man, in fact, is increasingly taking on a double mission: In one way, it models what the world could be, and in another it embodies dedication to changing what the world is. This is, to say the very least, an intensely challenging vision.

It is missing the exact point that I believe the filmmakers have tried to convey: Burning Man is quite mind-blowing the first time you go there, and only well filmed visuals might give a sense of this, AND there really are small communities that have grown out of it.
The intention of the filmmakers were to give a "feel" of what Burning Man is, as it was stated by the producer during a showing in San Francisco.

Burning Man, officially called the "Black Rock Arts Festival", is easily one of the most fascinating and least understood phenomena of our time.

Larry Harvey spells it all out in his oral history of Burning Man. Bruce Sterling describes his family's vacation at Burning Man, in his hysterical, and ultimately heartwarming piece, "Variation On a Theme Park (Taking the Kids to Burning Man)" Erik Davis' "Here is Post-Modern Space" is alternately intellectual jabbering and snarky commentary.
While certainly it's a great conversation piece for suckering in friends to go out with you to Burning Man next year, the biggest reason I like the book is because it functions as sort of a high school yearbook for all the freaks who went to Burning Man in the early to mid '90s.
The Camps, the communities, the building and the clean up, and the daily life issues we all face living on a blank canvas in the desert are largely ignored in favor of the art aspect of the event.

 Marc MERLIN's experience at Burning Man 2005: Psyche
If you do have cash burning a hole in your pocket though, please give it to the Opulent Temple: their budget was quite in the red after the event, and they put out the best Trance you could get at Burning Man this year.
This year's man was quite technical: not only was the first floor an entire maze with lots of nice displays, but on the second floor, you could make the man rotate by pushing a gigantic gear with the help of other people.
Also, if you ran around the man when it was on fire, you probably won't even know which way is north, nor do you have any visual landmarks to tell you at this point (well, maybe the temple if you can see it).

A record crowd, estimated at 30,500, attended the weeklong festival, which culminated with the traditional torching of a 70-foot-high pyramid-and-effigy structure.
Since then, the yearly Burning Man event in Nevada has grown to exponentially larger proportions, and "burners" throughout the country have begun holding regional "burns." Typically, these satellite events do not involve burning replicas of "the man." Instead, playful local symbols -- a moose, for instance, in one northern locale -- are chosen.
Employees of Black Rock City LLC, the organization that produces Burning Man, are working with those regional representatives to help organize satellite events within the spirit of the original.
