Mugino's rating of the film Seymour: An Introduction

A thoughtful and loving portrait of a thoughtful and loving man. It's easy to see why Hawke felt such instant kinship and thirst for Bernstein's wisdom. Here's a teacher who imparts his students with a warm vision of purpose and authenticity in one's art. One doesn't have to be a classical musician to appreciate this, but it can have special resonance for those molded by the craft. A sublime documentary.
