(1997) dir Martin Scorsese w/Tenzin Thuthob Tsarong, Gyurme Tethong, Tulku Jamyang Kunga Tenzin [134 min; 35mm]
Martin Scorsese’s biopic about the Dalai Lama is very rarely screened – and unavailable in a high-definition US home video release – but remains an absolutely gorgeous film. This is thanks largely to the award-winning cinematography of Roger Deakins whose camera seems equally at home on sunlit mountain slopes as it does in candle-lit monasteries.

“In imagining an exalted Buddhist version of a personal road not taken, Mr. Scorsese has made a film that is as much a prayer as it is a movie.” – Stephen Holden, New York Times
