I rented Kundun to further my quest to see all the Scorsese films I can. I never expected such an wonderful movie. I didn't wish this film to end. It's really hard to describe how I feel about this film since I have only viewed it once and was fully blown away, it left me in finished awe.Like most when I first started watching Scorsese I thought that he did brilliant gangster movies 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 actually Kundun I wouldn't care if Scorsese ever made other gangster film. It is simple to see that he is an artistic genius, the acting in the movie was great, but I should 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 movie has even more to offer. Scorsese's risk of using true Buddhists to do all of the acting payed off better than I ever expected it would, the fact that we are hearing the storyline through the folks it affected adds other lvl to this movie.I cannot trust that this movie only has a rating of 7 on this site. If you are a fanatic 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 film are unlike any of his films, not to mention a nice score by Phillip Glass.
I live in South Korea, so I didn't think I would receive some insights about buddhism from a Western movie. But this film shocked me a lot. Very pretty and meaningful visuals, quiet but spiritually forceful atmosphere each single moments are in the movie, I should hardly breath during playing. This film is not just about one man, but about the pain of all mankind and the method to transcend the pain and sin of ours in a very buddhist direction. China in this film got a terrible part. Ironically they were also victims of imperialism but learned the exact method to extort, destroy the property and beliefs of others by the power of machines. It was just sad to watch. But as Kundun implied, those violence's are in the shadow of our minds which could be overcame by the power of spirit. For me, this film says that.
I was rendered speechless by KUNDUN when I first saw it, and subsequent viewing have only confirmed my impression that this is one of Scorsese's finest films. Yeah - it's slow and elegant. So what.I've long held an admittedly superficial interest in Buddhism, and also been a fanatic of Scorsese, liking most of his movies quite a bit, so I went into this with some biases, but with each viewing this seems like a richer film. I also think that Scorsese was in some methods far more at home with this material than he was given credit for being. The cinematography and performances are perfect - the cast of mostly non-actors is surprisingly good, and much of KUNDUN is staggeringly pretty to watch.It has also struck me that this movie isn't as much of a departure for Scorsese as it first may seem - this movie works well as something of a companion to LAST TEMPTATION OF Christ in that both pictures examine nice faiths through spiritual figures in a method that personalizes the divine. This simply literalizes undercurrents running through a number of Scorsese's another films, which often turn on themes of loyalty, conviction and ethics (like the self-assurance, vs heavy obstacles, shown by Alice Hyatt in ALICE DOESN'T LIVE HERE ANYMORE). All evidence a worldview where some form of redemption or transcendance is possible. In their own ways, few memorable Scorsese characters - Sam Rothstein (CASINO), Henry Hill (GOODFELLAS), Rupert Pupkin (KING OF COMEDY), Paul Hackett (AFTER HOURS) and Alice Hyatt attempt this, some in methods that are desperate, comically misguided or just plain wrong, but they're all human, driven by some redemptive impulse nonetheless.The Catholicism of Scorsese's youth territories nice value on the importance of ritual, which is also real of Buddhism, which is depicted in a detailed and respectful fashion here, and the rhythm of KUNDUN - where the chronology of happenings isn't (or at least doesn't seem) forced, but are instead allowed to unfold in a more naturalistic and lifelike fashion also seems to mirror Buddhist concepts admirably.This is a far more complex movie than it first might appear to be - far from being a easy biopic, KUNDUN is much much more. Definitely one of Martin Scorsese's least appreciated films.
