Wheel of Time

Narrated with gluey reverence by director Werner Herzog, this new age travelogue (2003) documents a succession of Buddhist ceremonies led by the Dalai Lama. At one point His Holiness, addressing an audience of pilgrims in Bodh Gaya, India, breaks the news that—for reasons apparently too mystical to explain—the climactic ritual they're awaiting must be postponed until the following year's jamboree in Graz, Austria. It's a horribly uncomfortable moment, but at least it's interesting. Atypically lame, this is more for spiritual tourists than admirers of Aguirre: The Wrath of God. 81 min.
