Without a doubt, this is the best American movie about the Orient that has been ever made. Nothing we Americans will do will ever surpass this. Next to Akira Kurosawa's amazing works, there is Shogun. Shogun is in excellent company.
Do NOT see the shortened version, see all of it. The multi tape version is great; and the single tape mini version is a travesty.
