This came up last Monday when procrastinitrix asked it, and I thought it might be a fun question for us to all toss around. And another little break in the Jab Harry Met Sejal coverage, which is no doubt irritating for those of you who haven’t seen it/don’t want to see it.
So, yeah, I’ve been watching Jab Harry Met Sejal. Only 2 times so far. Opening night and last night. And another time scheduled tomorrow. It eats up all my free time, so no other movies (all Malayalam, classics, etc. posts for this week were written last week and pre-scheduled).
So, question for us to talk about instead of the new movies I’m not seeing!
If you could pick one movie in the world to erase from your memory and watch again for the first time, what would it be?
I’ve got two answers for two different reasons. First, DDLJ, because I would love to watch it with fresh eyes knowing everything I know now about Indian film. Instead of as my 3rd Indian film ever knowing nothing. There was so much I didn’t appreciate!
And second, Singin’ in the Rain, just because it was so amazingly joyous seeing it the first time (at age 6), and I want to experience that again! I don’t want to know anything more or anything like that, I just want to experience it again for the first time.
