[Not] just the biography of a remarkable man, but a revealing meditation on the relationship between spirituality and art.
Ultimately the documentary falls short of explaining why Vreeland not only made his choice but maintained it.
An engrossing documentary about a privileged young American who leaves fashion photography to become a Buddhist monk in India, then returns to photography to provide some crucial help to his monastery.
This superficial movie plays like a fashion shoot with robes.
Buried beneath the admiring encomia and ritual spectacle that clog the pores of this maddeningly tactful film is a tantalizing glimpse into the personal and institutional mechanics of Tibetan Buddhism.
Like a good photograph, or a wise abbot, it only presents the evidence and allows us to arrive at truth.
Monk with a Camera is a watchable film with an amiable subject, but it raises far more questions than it is troubled to ask.
There are only so many wealthy white guys who chuck it all for life as a Buddhist monk.
For a film so focused on the spiritual life, Camera is surprisingly lively.
Monk With a Camera has a placid air about it, an air of acceptance, perhaps. That it embodies a certain Buddhist calm is appropriate, although it doesn't make for the most exciting movie-watching experience.
Monk With a Camera suggests that this conflict can be more expansive, that art and communication, ego and compassion might shape all kinds of lives.
The life and work of a Western abbot in a Tibetan monastery in India who serves as a bridge-builder.
