Chogyam Trungpa, renowned Tibetan Buddhist leader, shattered notions about how an enlightened teacher should behave when he renounced his monk's vows & eloped with a sixteen year-old aristocrat. Twenty years after his death, Trungpa's name still evokes admiration and outrage. What made him tick? And just what is enlightenment, anyway? -- (C) Official Site

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.

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

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

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

I detected only charlatanism.

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