Critic Reviews for 10 Questions for the Dalai Lama

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (11) | Rotten (3)

  • Part history lesson and part profile, the film presents a concise, cogent account of recent Tibetan history as well as an engrossing onscreen conversation with one of the world's great spiritual leaders.

    October 26, 2007
  • 10 Questions works extremely well as an introduction to the Dalai Lama and offers a tantalizing peek at the dynamic and even mischievous personality of this influential man.

    October 26, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • "10 Questions for the Dalai Lama" is a tedious title for an anything-but-tedious film that expertly merges the mystical and the mundane.

    August 31, 2007 | Rating: 4.5/5
  • The 11th question would be: Does a TV-grade travelogue followed by a halfway-decent Q&A warrant a theatrical release?

  • There have been several documentaries about the Dalai Lama, but few have done a better job of packaging the Tibetan religious leader's circumstances, both historical and current, along with his philosophies, than 10 Questions for the Dalai Lama.

    July 30, 2007 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The film never rises above the spiritual or intellectual level of a TV news anchor. It is a dispiriting film to watch, if you have any real interest in the subject.

Audience Reviews for 10 Questions for the Dalai Lama

  • Dec 22, 2010
    It was nice to learn more about the Dalai Lama. Seeing this helped me understand the political situation with Tibet and why so many respect him regardless of religion.

    A much more expansive documentary than the title would suggest, this film doesn't quite establish a focus, shifting between a fairly boring and meaningless travel documentary and two interesting, but distinct documentaries about Chinese-Tibetan relations and about the life of the 14th Dalai Lama. Despite its amateurish cinematography, creating the feel of a PBS nature documentary the entire time, the film is still fairly interesting and worth a watch if you have any interest at all in the important global issue of Tibet.
