Jan 16, 1998 · "Kundun" is structured as the life of the 14th Dalai Lama, but he is simply a vessel for a larger life or spirit, continuing through centuries. That is the film's strength, and its curse. It provides a deep spirituality, but denies the Dalai Lama humanity; he is permitted certain little human touches, but is essentially an icon, not a man.
Now in the movie KUNDUN, LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST director Martin Scorsese focuses his lens on the 14th and currently living Dalai Lama, who is exiled from his native land, having been driven out by the Communist Chinese. Using non-actor, exiled Tibetans from all over the world, the boldly Buddhist movie was shot in Morocco and gives a beautifully photographed, but somewhat stale example of the classical hero’s journey from commoner through trials to exalted leader.

Martin Scorsese’s latest offering is luminous with the beauty of its costumes and truly spectacular cinematography, and as slow as cold molasses, befitting its winter 1997 release.
The Tibetans in this movie seem to be a kind, honest, open and cheerful people who are at the same time hardy, tough self-reliant and fiercely independent. Their devotion to their Buddhist religion pervades their every thought and action. Kundun depicts their reverence and deep affection for His Holiness The Dalai Lama.
