Gurdjieff - Meetings With Remarkable Men

Peter Brook, one of the pioneers of the experimental theatre movement of the 1950s and 1960s, was the director of Meetings with Remarkable Men. Brook tells the story of Asian mystic G. I. Gurdjieff, here played by Dragan Maksimovic. Gurdjieff devotes his entire existence, from youth to old age, in quest of the meaning of life. He eventually develops a form of meditation incorporating modern dance. Terence Stamp, who in Meetings with Remarkable Men plays Prince Lubovedsky, himself briefly retreated from his career after this picture, in favor of Eastern meditation.

I tried to watch Marat/Sade many years ago..and failed. It's at every LA Library.

I saw a screening of "The Collector" a while back too. Terence Stamp--what a charmer--gave a talk that basically covered his whole career. He claimed he spent 10 years in an ashram(I'm not so sure...after 10 years previous in swinging London, of course).

Thanks for posting this.
