I Care a Lot

J Blakeson’s I Care a Lot is an exciting and engaging mix of script transitions. It’s like, whenever the content feels predictable, it uses the peppy pace to excite you. And when things slow down a bit, it starts to navigate into directions that you may not have expected the story to move. And ultimately,… Continue reading I Care a Lot




Tenet

Resisting myself from any content that got published post the August 2020 release of Christopher Nolan’s latest film Tenet was indeed a tough task. And watching the movie finally on the big screen indeed gave me the brain exercise I was anticipating. Unlike the other films he has made, which manipulates the viewer into investing… Continue reading Tenet




The White Tiger

The White Tiger, the new Netflix original movie directed by Ramin Bahrani, is that aggressive critique of the class divide in our society. The story is about the determination of someone who knew the uneven social landscape and made the “smart” choice at the right time. It might feel like problematic heroism, but eventually, The… Continue reading The White Tiger

At its core, the Midnight Sky, directed by George Clooney, has a very emotional tale to tell you. If we can consider a movie like Interstellar as a Father-Daughter relationship story, a similar layer of emotion drives this movie. But the film based on the book Good Morning, Midnight by Lily Brooks-Dalton can’t hold your… Continue reading The Midnight Sky




Sound of Metal

Darius Marder’s Sound of Metal is one movie that will give you that melancholic hangover. The character of Ruben Stone lingers on your mind. And that’s mostly because of the kind of raw empathy the filmmaker shows towards his central protagonist. The theme here is about accepting certain irrevocable realities and stay in the race… Continue reading Sound of Metal




Mank

Before you watch Mank, the new Netflix original movie directed by David Fincher, you must watch the film Citizen Kane. I saw Citizen Kane, which some people consider the greatest movie ever made, very recently. Despite being set in an era with technical limitations, Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane showed impeccable technical quality. Mank by David… Continue reading Mank




The Trial of the Chicago 7

When you pick a real-life incident that happened over the course of time to make a movie, which phase in that incident you chose somewhat of determines the nature of the movie. And if you sort of deviate from the easily predictable angle of storytelling, it becomes interesting for the viewer and challenging for the… Continue reading The Trial of the Chicago 7




Evil Eye

When the central character of your movie literally utters the moral of the story at the very end of the movie, I personally consider that as the failure of a filmmaker. Evil Eye directed by Elan Dassani and Rajeev Dassani feels extremely clumsy largely because of its inefficiency to bring in heft to the narrative.… Continue reading Evil Eye
