    One of the finest existential films I've ever seen, and also one of the most challenging. Although it's religious focus is Buddhism, it's topics are universally significant. Like the other two films in the so-called Buddhist trilogy, This Transient Life explores conflicting philosophies, and these philosophies combined with the plot itself leave the viewer with a great deal to think about. Visually it's simply exquisite. Jissoji's aesthetic is on full display in beautiful black & white. 7 months 2 weeks ago
