Crazy Wisdom - Film Reviews

Postby Mr. G » Sun Feb 20, 2011 7:49 pm

Johanna Demetrakas’ documentary, which screened at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, follows the global trek of Tibetan lama Chogyam Trungpa and his impact.

Well before American Buddhists and New Age acolytes began flocking to the feet of Tibet’s Dalai Lama, hippies and spiritual seekers were following in the footsteps of Chogyam Trungpa, a Tibetan lama who took up residence in the U.S. during the 1970s.

A provocative account of Trungpa’s global odyssey, Crazy Wisdom offers a perceptive, if one-sided, perspective on Trungpa’s impact on American spirituality and the arts, but is probably too rarified for the uninitiated -- film fests, DVD and VOD will provide the best refuge.

Babes, booze and Buddhism

Of all the films featured at the 2011 Boulder International Film Festival, the most Boulder-centric is Crazy Wisdom. The 90-minute documentary is Los Angeles filmmaker Johanna Demetrakas’ stunning tribute to the late Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, the Tibetan Buddhist who founded Naropa University in 1974. Demetrakas will be on hand for a Q-and-A after the BIFF screening of Crazy Wisdom, which sadly, for such a profound (and profoundly Boulder-related) film, is occurring at 2:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 18, at the First United Methodist Church, rather than enjoying prime-time billing at the Boulder Theater.

In spite of a lousy showtime - 230pm on a Friday - Crazy Wisdom sold out. The demand was so high a second showing was offered and that sold out too.
