Reviews, G5A-NYIFF screenings: Highway, Ek Selfie Aar Paar & Cities of Sleep

Reviews, G5A-NYIFF screenings: Highway, Ek Selfie Aar Paar & Cities of Sleep If you’ve missed these two, you have missed a lot. While the former is fiction of the first order, treated in a documentary style, made by a trained and acclaimed young director the latter is a near feature-length documentary that explores a killer topic, and is enlivened by some remarkable central characters. G5A Film Festival is indeed lucky to have such impactful films to flag off its month-long screeni...

Local Sugar

LOCAL SUGAR--Look at all the laurels! It's been a whirlwind trip through all of these festivals--some enough I was lucky enough to go to in person, some only live online, and others are on my bucket list.  If you want to see what all the fuss is about, please go check out the script at .

“Art Bastard”: The Agony and Ecstasy of Robert Cenedella

  You might not expect much tender concern for legitimacy in a film called Art Bastard. Its subject, artist Robert Cenedella, trumpets his rogue status with glee. But Victor Kanefsky’s empathic character study probes the soft underbelly beneath the swagger and exposes the scars of not belonging. Unless you’re a cold-blooded bastard, you’ll come away from this visceral portrait of sentiment, conscience and humor not only enthralled but ready to write your local muse...

Waiting, Review: Coma dilemma

Waiting, Review: Coma dilemma Death is the only inevitable reality in life. It is also ‘the end’ that leaves the deceased at ‘eternal peace’, or at least at no risk of further physical or mental trauma, while family, friends and others who knew him/her, cope with the loss in a variety of ways. While it can be argued that some people cope with the event more objectively, the vast majority suffer great pain, even shock, of a magnitude that does not quite compare with any...

X Men-Apocalypse, Review: X-Men, Ex X-Men, ‘To be’ X-Men, and the 4 Horsemen

X Men-Apocalypse, Review: X-Men, Ex X-Men, ‘To be’ X-Men, and the 4 Horsemen In the ninth instalment of the X-Man Marvel comics’ series, we are confronted with a devil incarnate villain who lived thousands of years ago in Egypt, and surfaces in the civilised world of 1983. Nobody grovels at his feat in this eon, so he takes great umbrage. He is able to learn English by listening to a TV broadcast just once (if only he would share that technology/software with us humans), and...

Bilal--A New Breed of Hero, Review: Idol greed v/s rebel breed

Bilal--A New Breed of Hero, Review: Idol greed v/s rebel breed Here’s the first animation feature film coming out from the middle-east, and it makes you wonder what took them so long. It’s a new, breakthrough breed, and may the genre prosper! A thousand and four hundred years ago, a slave boy, Bilal bin Rabah, dreamt of becoming a great warrior. Instead, he found himself and his sister working for a wealthy merchant, in a land far away from home. Thrown into a world where idol wo...

Buddha in a Traffic Jam, Review: Political pottery

Buddha in a Traffic Jam, Review: Political pottery “If we need to become a strong country and wish to shine, we need thousands and millions of Buddhas who can fight the traffic jam.” — Vivek Agnihotri, writer-director, to an Indian publication. He was trying to explain the meaning of the title, which has nothing to do with either Budhha or traffic, but maybe something to do with jam. No, the scene where a man says that he cannot leave the post of the worshipper at a mini-t...

Pelé-Birth of a Legend, Review: Exciting draw

Pelé-Birth of a Legend, Review: Exciting draw Whenever a football match begins, all three possibilities are in place: a win for side A, a win for side B or a draw. Wins are exciting, draws not really the desirable result, in the high voltage sport, the most popular game in the world. Pelé-Birth of a Legend, a docu-feature on the Pérola Negra (Black Pearl) of Brazil, promises a lot, delivers much less and results in a draw. To be fair, it is not a tame, goalless draw, but ...
