I can’t help but compare For the Benefit of All Beings, a documentary on the life of Garchen Triptrul Rinpoche, to another recent documentary, Crazy Wisdom, which is about Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. While the two Rinpoches are quite different, the films have a similar feel. If one has an interest in (or even mild curiosity about) Tibetan Buddhism, this documentary will probably be a treat; if you’re not into this sort of thing, you’ll probably have no interest. The filmmakers have created a very nice-looking movie, with recent interviews of its elderly subject.
