    Groundhog Day

    ★★★½

    What would you do if you had the chance to live the same day over and over gain?

    Would you use your knowledge of the day's events to seduce unsuspecting women? Would you steal money from a bank? Would you invent a personality to make one of your colleagues fall in love with you? And would you eventually get bored and try to kill yourself out of depression?

    It's a Free World...

    ★★★★

    Ken Loach's films have always been centered on working class characters. It's A Free World..., focusing on the exploitation of immigrant workers in the UK, is no different.

    ★★★★★

    This is the third film directed by Alfonso Cuaron which I have seen, and I think he may be my favourite director for now.

    The film reflects on friendship, loyalty, intimacy, and the fragility of life among other things and yet manages to retain a certain amount of carefreeness about it. It is filled with gorgeous landscapes and scenes (some of which are strikingly similar to what one could find on-the-road here in India). I found some scenes extremely humourous…
