100
Riveting and unique.
75
Call it a spiritual Woodstock.
75
Mesmerizing documentary.
70
The movie might as well have been called "An Immersion in Tibetan Buddhism." With minimal explanation, it puts you right in the center.
70
Mesmerizing.
50
Chicago Reader
Atypically lame, this is more for spiritual tourists than admirers of "Aguirre: The Wrath of God."
50
Variety
Taken strictly as a docu about a key Buddhist ritual, Wheel of Time is a perfectly pleasant, educational film, featuring pretty pictures, exotic locations and interview footage with the Dalai Lama himself. As a Werner Herzog film, it's flat and disappointing.
50
Village Voice
Patient and fascinated, but never succumbing to abstraction, Wheel of Time can be seen as the middle installment of a trilogy against nature.
