Crazy Wisdom Reviews

There is not enough balanced coverage...to afford Crazy Wisdom anything other than a perfunctory nod; it unfolds like a fan letter to a rock star, forgiving of the debauched lifestyle the star leads because they have a beautiful voice.

The under rug-sweeping of the doc's eccentric flaws would be less grating if it elucidated Chögyam Trungpa's ideas with more clarity.

The movie goes mushy when it should be critical, and leaves you with questions that it's not prepared to answer.

A subject perhaps worthy of a documentary, but hopelessly obscured by fawning and myopia.

It plays more like a TV infomercial than an unbiased examination of the Tibetan's controversial life.

The film may be of greatest interest to those already familiar with Trungpa. Others may wonder at the shortage of critical perspective, and may find themselves less than wholly sympathetic to Trungpa's controversial actions.

A provocative account of Trungpa's global odyssey, Crazy Wisdom offers a perceptive, if one-sided, perspective on Trungpa's impact on American spirituality and the arts.

Whether the viewer adheres to, or even grasps, Eastern religion, this look inside the guru entertains.

The late Chogyam Trungpa's very colorful life makes for a most engaging narrative here.

Demetrakas has decided to simply present the man in all his demanding complexities and let him and his encounters with associates speak for themselves.

Crazy Wisdom appears to follow Trungpa's philosophical lead, in the sense that it doesn't criticize his behaviors, though it does consider his "times."
