A very unusual documentary, though the film is somewhat disjointed. The format is a series of interviews with Chinese, Tibetan, and American experts, who are clearly not experts. We have no idea about their backgrounds, why they came to study Tibet, or what their motivations are. There is little indication that the Tibetan people have any kind of culture, or heritage, other than those we can see in the Dalai Lama's image. The Tibetan and Chinese traditions that we see in the film are very different from one another, and most of the footage is very disturbing. We also see the Dalai Lama from a different point of view, as if we are supposed to be impressed by his wisdom and ability to speak with such clarity. The interviews are often very rude, especially the Tibetan one. These people are quite ill-prepared to deal with the Dalai Lama, and we get very little insight into their lives. The interviews are edited in a manner that makes them seem like a series of unconnected clips, rather than one long interview. There is a very serious tone to the film. It is not about the Dalai Lama, and not a sympathetic interview with him. It's about the Dalai Lama's beliefs, and those of his supporters. We do get a glimpse of the Dalai Lama's personal life, and we see the Dalai Lama's influence on his followers, but this is a relatively minor aspect of the film. We do get some insight into the education of the Dalai Lama, but we are not given enough detail to tell us whether his beliefs are sound, and whether the Tibetan people are making progress. This is a film that is much too long, and only by the end of it do we get a clear sense of what it is we are watching. We see some very disturbing scenes, such as when the Dalai Lama's bodyguards kill a Buddhist monk who was trying to help a prisoner, or when the Dalai Lama is attacked by a Buddhist monk who had come to Tibet to study Tibetan culture. These scenes are very disturbing, and while they do make the film, it is not a great film. We are also not given a sense of the Dalai Lama's purpose, his philosophy, or his personality. We get little sense that he is a modern leader, or that he is a good person, as we have seen in his public statements. In the end, we do not get much information about the Dalai Lama, and we do not know why he has so much influence over his followers. The film is a very interesting look at the Dalai Lama, and the Tibetan people, but it is not very interesting or valuable.

The Last Dalai Lama (2015) (TV) * (out of 4) Director George Nikitin has assembled a crew of people who have lived and worked in the Tibetan regions of India for many years. The group includes two people who were kidnapped by Tibetan rebels in Tibet and were taken to India where they have been kept in a monastery. They are given a mission to bring the Dalai Lama back to Tibet for a conference. They try to make contact with the Dalai Lama but don't have much success. This movie is directed by Nikitin who had previously made two documentaries on the Dalai Lama. He's also a big fan of the Dalai Lama so I'm sure he got a lot of inspiration for this film. The movie has a very slow pace for the first half and then the pacing picks up and it's quite interesting. It's an interesting documentary that has some very interesting things to say about Tibetans. I was surprised to see the Dalai Lama at the beginning of the movie but I guess it's because of his age. He's not exactly known for his health and I was surprised to see that he seemed to be in great shape. I don't know if he's really in good health but it did make me wonder if it's true. I'm sure if he's feeling better, he'd be back in a hurry. I'm sure it's because of his age. I also thought that the acting was great but I'm sure people who have seen the movie will have a different opinion. I think it's too much to expect actors to deliver a monologue when there is a lot to say about the Dalai Lama and the Tibetans. I think that the performances are good but it's not enough. The film does have a good message to say and it's a very interesting documentary that has some very interesting things to say about Tibetans.
