very interesting subject matter, but needn't have been a feature
28 May 2008 | by comeauSee all my reviews

I found LIVING GODDESS to be an interesting documentary, worth watching because the subject matter is very unusual and a useful glimpse into Nepali & South Asian religious culture.

On the downside it is fairly amateurishly made and needlessly stretched to feature length when a 30- or at most 45-minute treatment would have been more appropriate for the story.

Nitin Sawney's music was, as always, fantastic.

Seen at the BRITDOC festival in Oxford, July 2007.

Let me see, what else can I say? The end credits were very nice.

(This 10-line rule is really a pain.)
