The Daily Rhino
London Bong Festival
JUST a quickie. The DR looks forward to the London Film Festival, but this year not that many of the films leapt out screaming "watch me you bastard!" The DR has picked a few choice American, Indian, Japanese, Chinese and Korean films to watch.
However I did notice something rather cool. Take a look at the Indian offerings:
15 Park Avenue - Aparna Sen - an examination of the effect of schizophrenia on a young women and her family in Calcutta
After the Night... Dawn - Sandip Ray - apparently a Chekhovian drama, about the tangled relationships in a stranded group of friends
Antarmahal: Views of the Inner Chamber - Rituparno Ghosh - oppressed women in a rich 19th century Calcutta
The Journey - Ligy J Pullappally - a Keralite forbidden lowe
Journey to the Other Side (Uttarayan) - Bipin Nadkarni - love blossoming late in the day
Love - Balaji Sakthivel - a Tamil teenage love affair
50% are Bengali-directed, south Indians love love and there's no Bollywood in sight! Yeah mofo!
