Location: Bartos Screening Room
Dir. Martin Scorsese. 1997, 134 mins, 35mm. With Tenzin Thuthob Tsarong, Gyurme Tethong. Musical in structure, and supported by a vibrant score by Philip Glass that reverberates with low Tibetan horns, this dreamlike, sensual study of the early life of the Dalai Lama takes place, like Silence, far from Scorsese’s typical urban milieu. Lush gold and maroon hues fill the screen, in beautiful images captured by cinematographer Roger Deakins. The film’s brilliantly edited tapestry-like structure was underappreciated at the time of its release.
