From Martin Scorsese, the legendary director of Taxi Driver, Raging Bull and Goodfellas! Praised as one of the best films of 1997, Kundun received 4 Oscar nominations for Art Direction-Set Decoration (Dante Ferretti and Francesca Lo Schiavo), Cinematography (Roger Deakins), Costume Design (Dante Ferretti) and Score (Philip Glass). It’s the incredible true story of one of the world’s most fascinating leaders—Tibet’s 14th Dalai Lama—and his daring struggle to rule a nation at one of the most challenging times in its history. Powerfully told, deeply spiritual and visually elegant, the film chronicles the life of the young Dalai Lama as he matures in both age and learning. Greeted with both controversy and acclaim upon its release, Kundun is often considered the second film in an unofficial trilogy about crises of faith from director Scorsese, positioned between 1988’s The Last Temptation of Christ and 2016’s Silence.

Audio Commentary by Film Historian and Critic Peter Tonguette

Theatrical Trailer

"...the sheer density of material packed into this release is worth far over the asking price. The heart and passion which went into all of the films present provides a careful deliberation on not only the making of Kundun’s unique cinematic experience, but also the life and challenges of the people of Tibet. There is a soul to Kundun that doesn’t exist in any other Scorsese, De Fina, Mathison, or Deakins work, and by that virtue alone this film should be added to every cinephile's collection. "

"Featuring career-high work from Roger Deakins and Philip Glass, the story of the 14th Dalai Lama is tremendously moving."

"What an incredibly looking film - finally with a bone-fide Blu-ray rendering. Great job Kino! "
