Critic Reviews for When the Dragon Swallowed the Sun
You needn't disagree with the film's cause to feel oppressed by its propagandistic approach - not to mention Philip Glass's relentlessly mournful score.
A valuable though flawed documentary about the international movement to free Tibet from Chinese rule ...
Good access, good heart, bad craft.
Much of what people say here is maddeningly phased out in favour of oozingly self-righteous music by Philip Glass, precisely what Tibet does not need: an arty score.
A lengthy, demanding but worthwhile film ... admirably clear-headed about the deep splits within the Tibetan opposition.
It's all interesting if never quite absorbing and whilst the Dalai Lama himself is always good value, When the Dragon Swallowed the Sun is probably a film for those already sympathetic to the cause than an exposé to rally new supporters.
