The ending of the film is a solid statement that it is not about a body, it is not about age or gender, it is about the desire to perform. It is about the satisfaction after that makes art an experience to live for, to die for and to come back from the dead for.
The performances of the two leading ladies is so natural that you might forget that they are playing a character. Soni is powerful because it shows the lack of power that arises at time and for that reason alone, it is compelling to watch.
Petta almost feels like a greatest hits collection at time. You are sitting in the movie hall astonished by what this man and only this man can do. I have seen films from all over the world but there is a certain kind of happiness that only Rajnikanth can provide.
The one thing that can be said about Kancharapalem is that, you feel that you know what is going to
The films listed in this series are in chronological order and do not reflect the quality of the soundtracks mentioned
There are 14 songs in the soundtrack and that may sound like a lot, but when the quality of the songs is so high, you’ll be left wanting more. Think of the soundtrack as a buffet with the difference being that every dish is amazing.
The first time Gautham Menon and AR Rahman got together, we got one of the best albums to come out this century. It is perfect for a romantic film such as Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya. These songs work on their own but the visuals make it even more memorable.
Given the quality of Wildlife, I am happy to learn that Paul Dano has intentions of directing another film based on a family. If the result is anywhere near as good as this, it is going to be a treat to watch. I think you should give this film a try for it has one of the best acting performances of 2018 and also it is a good film.
Rang De Basanti is a beloved film for its story, performances and also the wonderful music given by AR Rahman. The film would have worked without the songs but having them made it feel more powerful.
It would be safe to call the films of Yorgos Lanthimos a bit of an acquired taste. Personally, I love his films and the way they are made but there are many who might be put off by how ‘weird’ it is. The Favourite is ultimately a film about power and more importantly love and to be honest, I loved it.
