Movie Info

BIKRAM: YOGI, GURU, PREDATOR examines the dramatic rise and fall of the controversial founder of hot yoga, Bikram Choudhury. Arriving in Beverly Hills from Calcutta, India in the early 1970s, Choudhury quickly cultivated a celebrity following and built a global fitness empire that furnished him with extreme wealth. But by the 2010s, as numerous sexual abuse allegations emerged and stories of his aggressive, cult-like training environment surfaced, the lawsuits started to mount and Choudhury's unorthodox teaching style became front-page news. Directed by Academy Award (R) winner Eva Orner (Taxi to the Dark Side, Chasing Asylum) and produced by Sarah Anthony (The Price of Free, The Defiant Ones), BIKRAM: YOGI, GURU, PREDATOR, a Netflix original documentary, shines a light on the stories of the women who took him down and explores the contradiction of how this healing discipline could simultaneously help and hurt so many.

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (17) | Rotten (1)

  • It's plain, straightforward and feels like one long news report with lots of factual reporting. At some point there is bigger, deeper work to be done on the appeal of the coiled, angry masculinity of Choudhury.

    Nov 25, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Over the course of 90 minutes, Bikram: Yogi, Guru, Predator successfully separates the man from the myth and reveals a monster.

    Nov 21, 2019 | Full Review…
  • This haunting documentary is a powerful addition to a growing body of post #MeToo films... that show how cultural power is accumulated and weaponized.

    Nov 21, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Even though Choudhury's crimes are a matter of record, Yogi, Guru, Predator is very damning.

    Nov 21, 2019 | Full Review…
  • It doesn't say much about abusive charlatans, their enablers, and their victims, that we don't already know.

    Nov 20, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • It's an especially effective look at how such abuses have been allowed to fester, exploiting protective institutions as well as the allegiance and hunger of those involved.
