Honestly, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should probably rewatch it at some point. Anyway, it is probably the most obscure movie directed by Martin Scorsese. I mean, who would have expected this catholic guy who almost became a priest to make a biopic about the Dalai Lama?!? Anyway, for Scorsese, it was probably his most experimental feature and, eventually, it turned out t... read more

Praised as one of the best films of the year, Kundun is a motion picture masterpiece directed by five-time Academy Award - nominated director Martin Scorsese. It's the incredible true story of one of the world's most fascinating leaders - Tibet's Dalai Lama - and his daring struggle to rule a nation at one of the most challenging times in its history. Powerfully told and set against a backdrop of world politics - the film's release created an international uproar!

"With it's cinematic visuals and rich score, Kundun is a film that sounds and feels like a sweeping epic, but silently sneaks passed all the Hollywood hub-bub to leave it's mark under the radar as a beacon for those who are in a constant search for under-appreciated cinema. Directed by the ever capable hands of Martin Scorcese, it's an illuminately layered biopic that covers several stages of the life of the 14th personage of the Dalai Lama. A life dedicated to the pathway of peace that is the h"
