    Sometimes the hype is misleading. Especially if you consider the proliferation of social media and how much an exaggeration of the qualities of a movie is confused with the dopamine high experienced as a perspective of subjective approval.

    Sometimes though, the hype is legitimately pointing towards the truth.

    What we have here is a hybrid form of filmmaking. Filmmaking where…

    There is always something revealing about the innermost psyche of a director in his debut feature, a form of perspective so unvarnished that the impact of that perspective only hits harder. The emotions depicted aren't new, but the approach to depicting them manages to imbibe a new meaning for the viewer.

    It is not enough that Joyland is the love story between Haider, the youngest son of a patriarch in a middle-class Pakistani family, who falls in love with a…

    What is striking about "Pickup On South Street" is the world-building and Fuller's insistence on developing a lived-in network of criminals with their own codes. But within those networks of thieves, prostitutes, and pimps, Fuller searches for humanity and finds it, managing to extract it from the deep burrows of machismo and quick-witted, razor-sharp dialogues so trademark of American noir. In…

    It's always fascinating to explore movies which barely cross the hour mark, but more often than not manage to tell a complete story. One of the primary reasons is the tightly plotted screenplay, which surprisingly packs in a variety of themes and sub-genres - class warfare, infidelity, moral dilemma as well as a heist included within it for added measure. What is immediately striking…

    Love, Death & Robots: Jibaro


    The story of a deaf knight and a siren of myth attracted to each other. She because he is unaffected by her scream, he because she is a mythological creature adorned with treasure. What occurs in Alberto Mielgo's 18 minute short with an almost manic camera work moving in and out of focus, is the deconstruction of myths and reconstructing it through a far violent and haunting lens. The snatching of the treasure is eerily reminiscent of the snatching of…

    Observations -
    1. If i had a nickel for every time a Netflix Bollywood or a soon to be released Netflix Bollywood movie uses the story of the frog and the scorpion as its central theme, I would have two nickels. Which isn't a lot, but I am still surprised it is more than one.

    2. Try as I might I still don't understand how the first fable narrated by Konkona Sen Sharma's character even remotely wraps itself around the…
