This is an on-going list of films with a specifically Buddhist flavor or theme. Not all are great films, but I enjoyed them for what they were.

Kundun, Little Buddha, Seven Years in Tibet, The Fountain, The Matrix, Enlightenment Guaranteed (German film), Unmistaken Child, The Buddha (PBS) I *heart*  Huckabees, La Jetee (The Pier, a French film) Ultimately all films get back to samsara, but watch these: Of Human Bondage, and Blond Venus.

Please also check out Michael Wood’s luminous documentary for PBS,“The Story of India.” This is where it all started!
