Frank: Great movie, adorable, funny and sensitive. Might be a wee bit melodramatic for some, a great watch none the less
Seemabadha (Company limited) an often ignored gem from Ray's stable. Watch it for the sheer poetry of the mise en scène. Sharmilla Tagore gives one of her most mature performances.
You don't see Ray literally through your eyes, yet you sense his presence in each frame, such brilliance, such creativity, such poetry, the sheer artistry brings tears to ones eyes. A great compilation of shots from his movies.
If anyone has doubts of cinema being a pure art form do watch Persona by Bergman.
Though I am not a big fan of Mani Kaul's features, his films are visually striking and have a strong emotional impact, the impact changes in its quality and quantity from scene to scene. One leaves the theater, which is usually a dingy arthouse one, with this bundle of disjointed emotions, makes you feel that…
One can never escape succumbing to the beauty of Satyajit Ray's frames. To say that charulatha is poetry on screen would be an understatement.
