Critic Reviews for Tibet: A Buddhist Trilogy
Long before the two-hour mark, Coleman's documentary begins to more resemble a photographic tour through a museum than an exploration of a living religion.
A rigorous, labor-intensive viewing experience, but there's something to be said for its unadorned purity.
I, for one, knew nothing about Buddhism going into this film and was eager to find out about the principles of the religion. After two hours of grueling ceremonies and rituals, I knew barely anything more than I did before.
Recut and reassembled at just a little over two hours, the new version of the film is a staggering and bracing object, stylistically bold and hypnotically captivating.
Watching tranquility and devotion does not translate to nonpractitioners as much more than a travel ad for the budding Larry Darrells among us.
