Dao ma zei (The Horse Thief) (1986)
Critic Reviews for Dao ma zei (The Horse Thief)
It offers the most awesomely plausible account of Tibetan life and culture ever seen in the west. It's one of the few films whose images show you things you've never seen before.
The film's tribal drama of theft, ostracism and terrible retribution unfolds, although the director, Tian Zhuangzhuang (an iconoclastic graduate of the Beijing Film Academy), uses few conventional means of bringing these dramatic events to the forefront.
Tian had said that he made this for the 21st century, yet even today it's a film of the future.
Famously, Martin Scorsese chose this film as the best he'd seen in the 1990s.
A truly amazing film that takes a western audience to mystical places they have never seen before.
