    Seven Years in Tibet, however flawed, has feeling and purpose. It bears witness. show more

    Edward Guthmann San Francisco Chronicle

    Pitt isn't a bad actor, but he's way out of his depth and never disappears into the character -- a selfish rogue who gets a jolt of enlightenment at the feet of the Dalai Lama -- the way a superior actor like Daniel Day-Lewis might have. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    The movie is a star vehicle at heart, aimed more at marketing Pitt's popularity than probing complexities of empire-building and cultural clash that trouble the Tibetan region to this day. show more
