One reason it's a must-see: I'm sorry, did you not see where I mentioned "Martin Scorsese"? No one does these social x-ray movies the way he does, and while it seems like crime always plays best with the audience, I would argue that "Kundun" and "The Age Of Innocence" belong on the same shelf with "GoodFellas". These are movies that capture a time and a place and dissect it so we can see not only the shiny surface but the rotten underbelly. The trailer made phenomenal use of Kanye West's "Black Skinhead," and it looks like a blast, an odd thing to say about a movie that deals with the financial meltdown.
