Movies : LUSENET : bodhi : One Thread

Seen any Buddhist movies lately

Are movies Buddhist?

-- Gary Gach (, August 24, 2001


To any and all who might be interested, I went to the movie, Ice Age, at first glance it is easy to watch and see only an animated movie. Through out today as I worked, I continued to review the movie in my head and somewhere around the middle of the day, it struck me as an animated showing of how one becomes enlightened and gives up a form of craving for unconditional love. Dennis Leary is not exactly the actor who you would expect that from in any movie but he pulled it off very well. If you get the chance I would heartily suggest it.

Anna and the King (Jodie Foster and Chow Yun Fat) - a movie about the meeting of Christianity (represented by the English Teacher Anna) and Buddhism (represented by the Siam King).

A much better presentation then "the King and I"
