Pitt is smiling, taking his shirt off, brushing his blond locks with his hands, striking poses against the picturesque scenery--in short, being Brad Pitt.

Part road picture, part epic, and part spiritual journey, Seven Years in Tibet is a beautiful film with a story so typical-yet-unusual that it could only have come from autobiography.

I was expecting the worst -- everyone calls this film "Seven Hours in a Theater." But really, it's pretty good

Failed to convince me that Harrer moved from a self-absorbed bigot to an enlightened being, especially since his memoir never mentioned his Nazi past.

Most will likely forget about Seven Years in Tibet soon after viewing since the filmmakers have focussed on less interesting aspects

After more than an hour of solemn preparation, we get ... Brad Pitt showing a kid how to drive a car and work a radio. Wow.

Pitt is no disgrace but is blown off the screen by a bright-eyed adolescent actor.

One of the season's more substantial large-scale entertainments, using colorful storytelling and Pitt's appealing presence to spotlight an imperialistic event that continues to cry for correction.

Absolutely beautifully photographed, deeply respectful of Tibetan culture, and more than a bit tedious.

Annaud and screenwriter Becky Johnston's view of the Tibetans isn't much more sophisticated than James Hilton's depiction of the inhabitants of Shangri-La in 'Lost Horizon': They're mostly serene mystics...
