Brace yourself! I’ve got an idea! And I’m gonna run with it! Even if you all end up hating it!
Book club was suuuuuuuuuuuuch fun! But I am running out of ideas of fun short easy to find reads that everyone at DCIB would enjoy equally. On the other hand, I keep thinking of fun short easy to find WATCHES that everyone at DCIB would enjoy equally. So I am switching gears!
These won’t be Indian movies, because we all have different tastes and things with those. But they will be non-Indian movies of the type I know everyone here would enjoy. Some of them have even been remade as Indian movies!
First pick, Streets of Fire! It’s on Netflix, it’s only 90 minutes, and it is what Tezaab/Varsham/Baaghi is based on. And it is the weirdest coolest strangest thing you have ever seen in your life. Willem Dafoe plays a queer leader of a motorcycle gang wearing leather overalls. And that’s the least strange thing about it.
Watch it on your own sometime over the next few days and we will get back together and discuss on Sunday! And if you don’t get to it by then, just come back to the Sunday post and comment later.
