Superb short piece
25 January 2007 | by JohnRLSee all my reviews

The biggest flaw in this piece is that it is too short. Each segment could have been expanded just a few minutes to give more detail of how each segment's subject ("hero") improves her/his situation by connecting with the Traditional roots of her/his culture. The photography is breathtaking; the music superb; the story line solid.. It's just about 15 - 20 minutes too short. Well worth buying if you can get the DVD.. If it isn't for sale to the general public, it ought to be. A Thousand Roads is a classic without clichés or focussing on negatives such as alcohol or drug use, & it's almost brand new. I love being wowed, & this piece wows me. I rattle my tongue for A Thousand Roads.
