Profoundly moving and inspiring documentary
7 June 2005 | by (South England) – See all my reviews

One of the most profoundly moving and inspiring documentary films I have ever seen. Ram Dass talks openly about his experiences with his ageing process and willingly shows his vulnerability to his situation. His ability to put this into words is inspiring and left me feeling more resourced about any suffering in my own life.

The documentary is informative, funny and poignant and should appeal to any with yearning for honesty and understanding of life's dilemmas. The style of the movie doesn't try to be slick or clever or preachy. Ram Dass's spirituality is portrayed through his twinkling eyes as much as through his words.

Gives an interesting short historical leap into the late sixties / early seventies with footage of Timothy Leary and acid culture. The scenes of 400 hippies dancing on the lawns of Ram Dass's father's house is great. Would your father be OK with that?

Do not pass this film by.
