buy this A TOUCH OF ZEN (1969)
DVD by Tai Seng Entertainment
December 10, 2002
From user ncc1205 (amazon)
A TOUCH OF ZEN is a little marvel of a film that modern cinemaniacs probably don't revere as much as they might given the fact that much of what's explored in the legend has already influenced countless other more contemporary films, and, thus the impact of ZEN has probably lessened over the years. This tale of redemption has experienced a resurgence of interest on the coattails of CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON, but it lacks the emotional resonance of that film for today's more cynical audiences.

buy this SIDDHARTHA
DVD by Image Entertainment
December 03, 1972
A glorious adaptation of the classic Herman Hesse novel, "Siddhartha" was filmed by Conrad Rooks with legendary cinematographer Sven Nykvist in Northern India. Bewitched by the shimmering beauty and magic of this ancient land, they transformed Hesse's tale into widescreen poetry. A moving evocation of each person's search for the divine within, this is the story of young Brahmin who leaves his wealthy parents to become a "sadhu," a wandering ascetic. He meets and is awed by the Buddha but chooses to follow his own path, which leads him to sensual passion and material wealth. In the end he finds these pleasures empty and abandons them to find enlightenment on an entirely different plane.

buy this THE SALTMEN OF TIBET
DVD by Zeitgeist Video
July 30, 2002
This is a wonderful and touching documentary. A German film entirely in Tibetan with optional English subtitles. The film follows four Tibetan Salt men as they make a month long journey to the salt flats to harvest salt for their tribe. To the salt men the journey is a holy pilgrimage full of its own rituals and spiritual meaning. - Michael Love
