HIMALAYA is Asianphilic ethno-porn. Valli's camera lingers over the leathery flesh of the Tibetans like he was shooting stills for a taxidermic showcase in a natural history museum. Oh, and the old man reaches the top of the mountain HIMALAYA is Asianphilic ethno-porn. Valli's camera lingers over the leathery flesh of the Tibetans like he was shooting stills for a taxidermic showcase in a natural history museum. Oh, and the old man reaches the top of the mountain against all odds, then conveniently expires. This film leaves no cliche unturned. It is simpleminded and offensive in its fetishization of its subjects. Why so many people are lapping this up, I'll never know. Avoid. Expand
