MISS LOVELY - hard-boiled, art-pop insanity from India
23 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at the Toronto Film Festival 2012 and was left speechless - this is a really hard-hitting, pulpy, gritty and rather radical take on the underground sleaze film industry in India in the 1980s. Like Sam Fuller & Dario Argento got together to remake an underground Bollywood film - and that doesn't even close to describing it. It vacillates between unscripted documentary and pulp thriller, creating a new hybrid style that is unlike anything I've seen before. If you're a fan of hard-boiled cinema with an experimental twist, I would strongly recommend this film. Beautifully photographed in classic cinema-scope with a mix of vintage film stocks. exceptional.
