Movie Reviews

Murillo | Campos dos Goitacazes, Rio de Janeiro Brazil | 02/14/2001
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This "On Tibet" should be renamed to "About Tibet". If your purpouse is to enjoy beautiful landscapes of Tibet, its religion, buddhism, rituals, sacred places and so on, you'll make a mistake buying this video. "On Tibet" is a 4-hour speeches about Tibet, Mr. Thurman standing in fornt of you like a teacher at school. It is boring and if you don't mind it is less expensive to buy an audio cassete or CD. Attention !"
Thurman the Teacher
Carl R. Buechler | Cocoa, Fl United States | 11/13/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"You need some background in Buddhism to appreciate this series. I have other films by Robert Thurman and find him captivating. This series is sort of an historical account of Tibetan Buddhism, is not as deep as Thurmans "Buddhism" and more centered on why, who and how the Dharma was spread in Tibet."
History and Myths of Tibet Bargain
John I. Oines | 01/02/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Three 90 minute tapes. A bargain price for three lectures from a professor from Columbia U NYC. However, one thing to bear in mind, Thurman has an irreverant sense of humor that people either love or hate.

If you think he is funny, you will find these tapes a wealth of information about the history of Tibet, the arrival of Buddism and its growth there."
