Kumaré is a documentary about a man who impersonates a wise Indian Guru and builds a following in Arizona. At the height of his popularity, the Guru Kumaré must reveal his true identity to his disciples and unveil his greatest teaching of all. —SXSW
A cautionary tale that delves into the human need to believe in a higher source of wisdom. There's something horribly creepy and unnerving in this reality-tv styled doco. The final reveal comes together beautifully and is deeply rich with emotion. It's just a shame that we never get any deeper insight into the motivations and background of the mysterious Kumare himself. 3 stars
What's the point? Not sure I understood the purpose of this sarcastic documentary. I feel I lost some precious time watching it when there are so many beautiful movies on my watch list!
