The Mantra, The Movement and the Swami Who Started It All plays more like a promotional video than a serious documentary about a swami and his spiritual movement.The film gets off to a reasonable start as it introduces us to Srila Prabhupada, who founded the international movement during the 1960s, when some in the counterculture were searching for a more spiritual alternative to drugs, sex and rock ’n’ roll.To be fair, Prabhupada has a nice presence and offers some profound thoughts, but we can’t help but notice that this movie seems to be merely an exercise in anointing him for sainthood.The movie shows signs of life when it presents segments about devotees Allen Ginsberg and George Harrison.[...] there is brief humor found in clips from “Airplane II” and “Hannah and Her Sisters,” which poked fun at the movement’s penchant for dancing and chanting.
