This is such a brilliant movie, and the more you know about it, the more you see how brilliant it is. Luckily, I just took a couple headache pills and the caffeine is going to keep me up all night, so I can tell you how brilliant it is!Continue reading
Such a brilliant movie!!!! SUCH A BRILLIANT MOVIE!!!!! One of those where I paused five minutes in so I could start taking notes. I will be doing a full Annotated post later. But this is just sort of an intro to the Motwane career and a sense of the film so you can decide if you want to see it.Continue reading
This movie is so good! And interesting! And unique! And Sonakshi is amazing in it. Seriously, you should all watch it. And maybe not read this review, because it is crazy long.Continue reading
Devdas adaptations are always important, kind of a barometer for where India is right now and what issues surround the country. Plus, this was the film that announced Anurag Kashyap as a real true talent to watch. But on the other hand, 2009 was such an amazing year, I don’t know if it really can be limited to just Dev.D even as amazing and important as Dev.D is.Continue reading
This is a very long post with a lot of big thoughts and some specific examples but even if you don’t read the whole post, you should read this new rule I am instituting for #MeToo related comments: IF YOU ARE COMMENTING HERE ABOUT A #METOO STORY, YOU MUST INCLUDE A LINK BACK TO THE ORIGINAL DETAILED REPORT, OR SUMMARIZE IT FOR US. YOU CANNOT SIMPLY GIVE A NAME WITH NO CONTEXT. If you forget, I will find the link and summarize it in a reply. But I’ll only do that three times before I start just not printing your comments, so please try to remember.
Still no big big exciting stories, but some interesting things today, worthy of discussion. Some more than others, but all worth reporting.
I am so glad I saw this movie! It meant driving for over an hour there and back and spending hideous amounts of money on the tickets (I do not understand the release strategy at all. Why only one theater, and only the most expensive theater?), but it was exciting and different and most of all, just plain GOOD.
This weekend, over the course of 30 hours, I went from having seen no Devdases to having seen all 4 important Devdasi, and read the novel. Oh, and I also watched Dishoom. And went grocery shopping. I didn’t sleep much, but what’s more important? Sleep or seeing every famous version of Devdas within the same 24 hour period so that I never have to think about them again?
Nothing really “fun” today, all of it is stuff I’m either concerned about or neutral. But, some of it is still interesting to talk about!
