The interviews work on many levels and the flow of the film is ultimately designed to get you to understand the importance of the message of The Dalai Lama -- that our true humanity is lodged in love and compassion. The Last Dalai Lama? asks the question -- Is this the last Dalia Lama? It also provides the rich background to this question and the struggles he and his people have faced with the intervention and imperialism of the Chinese.
This is a film that all should see. It is powerful and disarming. Especially disarming if the inclusion of former President George W., Bush and his role in celebrating this great man.
