incredibly beautiful movie
I rented Kundun to further my quest to see all the Scorsese movies I can. I never expected such an incredible movie. I didn’t want this movie to end. It’s really difficult to describe how I feel about this movie since I have only viewed it once and was completely blown away, it left me in complete awe.
Like most when I first started watching Scorsese I thought that he did brilliant gangster films and that was his thing, but I have recently discovered that this couldn’t be further from the truth. Fist seeing The Last Temptation of Christ and now Kundun I wouldn’t care if Scorsese ever made another gangster film. It is easy to see that he is an artistic genius, the acting in the film was great, but I could have watched it on mute and still have been amazed.
If, like I was, you are unfamiliar with the Buddhist religion and the Chinese takeover of Tibet this film has even more to offer. Scorsese’s risk of using real Buddhists to do all of the acting payed off better than I ever expected it would, the fact that we are hearing the story through the people it affected adds another level to this movie.
I cannot believe that this film only has a rating of 7 on this site. If you are a fan of Scorsese and are not sure you are going to like this just give it a chance, it deserves at least one viewing, if you give it that I am sure you will be amazed as I was. Scorsese’s vision’s in this movie are unlike any of his films, not to mention a great score by Phillip Glass.
A lovely, beautiful film
“Kundun” I think is one of Martin Scorsese’s less appreciated films. Probably because it is such a departure from most of his other pictures. Like “The Age of Innocence”, it is a quieter more reflective film that encourages and challenges the audience to dig deeper into the film than just the visuals.
“Kundun” is a very spiritual film without being religious. This may not make sense to most people, but after viewing the film, even if like me, you are not a very religious person, you cannot help but be moved by the selflessness and love that these characters experience.
Cinematic ally, it is also one of Scorsese’s most beautiful films as well.
