Peter Brook’s 1989 production of The Mahabharata part 1.
I just finished watching this in full and I think it might just be the best thing I’ve seen since El Topo (1970) and The Holy Mountain (1973). By way of Meetings with Remarkable Men.
For the next step on this journey I’ll be reading René Daumal’s Mount Analogue: A Tale of Non-Euclidian and Symbolically Authentic Mountaineering Adventures (excerpt here) and maybe coming down the mountain again with my buddy Zarathustra.
