The story and settings hold interest throughout, but at times the very lack of emotional connection that Yeshi laments in his father seems to hinder the film.
"My Reincarnation" is a fascinating, if inexpertly told, yarn.
Buddhism teaches patience, and you're going to need it if you attempt to sit through the conciliatory bromides of the slow documentary "My Reincarnation."
Languid and contemplative, the film is typical of the intimate, paired-down aspect of Fox's style, a documentary in which lives accumulate in small moments.
"My Reincarnation" makes a pretty strong case: when the family business is enlightenment, listen to your dad.
It's fascinating to watch Yeshi grow from a skeptical teenager into a spiritual leader -- a transformation that still doesn't bring him any closer to his father.
The film's unforced nature yields more good than not, treating Namkai's brush with cancer and Yeshi's response with a quiet dignity as well as filling the film with Zen-like imagery of waves crashing at the beach and sunsets that seem wholly organic.
Amazing documentary that chronicles the story of the Tibetan Buddhist Master, Chögyal Namkhai Norbu.
Even if Yeshi's dilemma never seems that urgent or vital, "My Reincarnation" remains a compelling, universal film.
Effective though flawed film works as both revealing documentary and moving family drama.
An unusual and enlightening documentary about Tibetan Buddhism, impermanence, a popular spiritual master and his son, who has been designated as the reincarnation of a famous lama.
My Reincarnation, at its simplest, is another illustration of the idea that people of most walks of life have essentially the same problems.
