Third Eye 14th Asian Film Festival, 2015, I: Mixed fare, few takers
It came at the fag end of the year, a week of holidays and unwinding. Prabhat Chitra Mandal, the organising film society, has a large member-base, and has held the festival at bigger and multiple screen venues in the past.

More recently, we had Lars von Trier’s m...

Long festivals and so many films to watch, besides the regular weekly releases to see and review—not unexpectedly, festival diaries go into several parts, and even get interrupted by another festival that follows on the heels of the earlier one. MFF17 was followed by IFFI. But there still so much to day about MFF, so here’s one more instalment of the Diary.
Thithi is a two-hour long Kannada film set in rural Karnataka. It has earned rave rev...

"The evil and I are old friends.
The people and the part he posed claims a tremendous responsibility for the truth to the person, Jimmy Bulger, and in painting a character you don't like.
Just shooting from the hip.
Bad people do bad things well, it's a quest.
Depp's heroes? John Barrymore and Marlon Brando.
He plays a character, not a poster boy, there's a danger transformation
To look like Jimmy Bulger? The blue eye contacts."
