Documentary
Crazy Wisdom is a documentary about Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, a key person in bringing Tibetan Buddhism to Western shores. He was extremely radical in his ways: He smoked, drank and had a voracious sexual appetite. He taught and inspired many people, but was extremely self-destructive, especially when he became inebriated. The film touches briefly upon his early years before he and other Buddhists were cast out of Tibet, but focuses mostly on his adult life and his eccentric ways of educating others in the ways of Buddhism. Unfortunately, despite an obviously interesting subject, this is one tedious documentary. The subject is handled poorly, and the interviews are unfocused and repetitive. It's a shame. You'd get more information and be far more entertained by taking 15 minutes and reading the Wikipedia entry on him.
