Faithful but flat and uninspired.

In the end, Siddhartha the movie fails in its attempt to explore and question and meditate. You can't be meditative while running through a field and leaping over foxholes.

Unless you are fully into the subtleties of Hinduism, you are likely to find it rather flat and lethargic.

Like Chappaqua, the movie doesn't live up to the legend.

A gentle reminder of just how much life and movies have changed -- not entirely for the better.

Shooting largely in natural light, Nykvist creates a poetry more beautiful than Hesse's prose and as profound as the author's message.

Apologies to Conrad Rooks, but the only reason his 1972 film, Siddhartha, is getting a 30th-anniversary rerelease is the appeal of seeing Sven Nykvist's amazing cinematography restored to its full splendor.

Sven Nykvist's golden-hued cinematography perfectly suits Hesse's mind-expanding narrative of Buddhist enlightenment.

Rather than living on as reminder of India in the early 1900s, the film now exists as a period piece of another sort, namely, as a cult film of the psychedelic era.

A beautiful and timeless achievement, Conrad Rooks' 1972 adaptation of Herman Hesse's appropriation of East Indian mythology still entrances.

A lovely, evocative piece that may come across as stodgy and obvious thirty years after its release.
