great adventure and wild scenes
10 April 2005 | by (california) – See all my reviews

I saw this in a theater on first release. Thirty years later I still remember how overwhelming this film can be for those of us not lucky enough to have been to India.

It would be great to see again, though, it's not readily available as a rental. A good investment nonetheless and I look forward to seeing this again...all 7 hours or so.

Students of yoga and, specifically B.K.S. Iyengar, can see Mr. Iyengar in the film. I wasn't studying yoga when I first saw this so I can't actually recall anything about him. I've seen some comments through the years about how patrician Mr. Iyengar comes off in the film and, I would welcome the chance to see this again.

The complexity of religion, huge population and great physical expanse of India will take you away, often, in 'Phantom'.

And, yes, some people do live in trees.

Wild stuff.
