Crazy Wisdom: The Life and Times of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche

Yup, it's another documentary about a Tibetan wise man. Chogyam Tungpa was quite the hot property back in the '70s. Allen Ginsberg made him his personal guru. Joni Mitchell wrote a song about him. Also, he smoked, drank and slept with his students—which earned him the nickname "the bad boy of Buddhism." This reverent doc sweeps a lot of stuff under the rug, preferring instead to talk to lifelong fans of the (now deceased) spiritual leader. In English and Tibetan with English subtitles. 86 minutes
