An Underrated Masterpiece,

This review is from: Kundun [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
This film is amazing. It is a shame that so few people have seen it, but that just makes it all the more special.
I saw it at the cinema, then one boring Sunday night I rented it out to watch it again, this time with my mother. I tried not to tell her too much about it as I knew she would not be interested. When she saw it though she thought it was great. She often mentions 'that film about the little boy Dalai Lama'. She wasn't to keen about the mountain burials though ...
The cinematography, the costumes, the sets, the music, all of these contribute to a really special film. It is a shame that people will only turn out to a Scorsese film when it contains physical violence and / or the Mafia. This film is definitely one of his best. When is it coming out on widescreen?
