  • Milarepa is a sort of Batman Begins version of the early life of renowned Tibetan saint Jetsun Milarepa (1052-1135).

  • Milarepa: Magician, Murderer, Saint, a picturesque fable filmed in the mountains of northern India, shows us how most -- if not all -- roads to spiritual enlightenment are paved with suffering.

  • Despite timely and worthwhile subject matter, there is nothing very inspired or inspiring in what makes it to the screen.

    October 5, 2007 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The movie's spectacular scenery and compelling message counterbalance the somewhat plodding pace and wooden performances by a cast of nonactors.
