A Man-woman relationship is as complex as it can get. Its an equation of life where there are too many variables like sex , love , marriage which never balances each others. Few other external variables make it even more complex like religion , age , social norms , kids & our perceived notion of expectations of love and hypocrisy to settle for much lesser in real life.Some say its easier to decipher code of entire universe or describe the God than to really decipher a man-woman relationship. Some say you can either understand it or live a happy relationship. For this reason perhaps most of Hollywood (and all other woods of world cinema) typically focus on sweet romantics , mushy romances and fairytale of Cinderella than to deal with real-life hard hitting more lifelike movies on relationship which really touch the chord. Very few movies have been made which deals with true emotions behind the Love , compulsions behind sex and lack of choices behind marriages. Few mirrors life's relationships mostly as it is , with all its imperfections perfectly.
The Dark Knight Rises (2012)
Seriously , who directed this movie?
I am not even trying to compare this movie to first two of the serious coz thats a futile attempt but seriously who directed this movie? Is he the same man who direct TDK and movies like Inception & Mememto ? I cant believe it? This is way toooooo stupid & too shallow to belong to any sensible director!!! I think Nolan must had taken paycheck while some second unit was doing its shooddy job ...in 18/19century some well known writers including Alexander Dumas at times used to employ army of "assistant writers" who will write while they publish in their name ; are we seeing something like that? This movie , its story ..its annoying music ..hollow characters n stupid story sequences are way too irritating n too much insulting to even a donkey faced audience. If The Dark Knight was highest point in the superhero movie history , this gotta be the lowest ebb since it came from someone whom the world saw as Kubrick's Son !!!! Still cant believe those who adore the movie .....are the sarah palin types growing at such a phenomenal rates in USA? Do they even ustand what a movie is?
Into the Wild (2007)
A Liberating Film
"Into The Wild" is a truly beautiful & liberating film ; it liberates one,s soul from the mundane material excesses of life. Based on true story of Christopher Mccandless , a young at age of 23 leaves everything behind in his pursuit of happiness , happiness as he seek in truth , purity & freedom from society (or rather its lies & hypocrisies) . If there is one movie which one can watch a million times & still feel inspired every single time , then "Into the Wild" along with "The Shawshank Redemption" has to be there. Both are stories of eternal optimism of life & freedom of soul. The only difference between two is one if fictional while other true story.
What makes this movie so special is not just acting from Emile Hirsch which is simply superb , but also its director Sean Penn. He penned movie in narratives of his sister which are heart wrenching & are spoken with such bare essences that one could feel the pain of Chris. There are numerous others who had given memorable performances in their 5-10 mins screen time (Stuart & Hal Holbrook in particular) , which is essentially a director,s feat.
I always felt envy of those people who can live their dreams. It doesn't really matter what that dream is , as long as those who want it , have courage to go that path , not caring about anyone or anything ,are happiest people on this planet. Very few could do so. One of the most amazing lines in movie is ""career is a 20th century invention" , we increasingly define life in terms of material gains , gadgets , property , money etc. never realizing , money is a means to an end & not an end in itself . & in running after the means we lose our ends.
The movie is for you if you are the one who feels pain by the lies....if you are not a believer in "surviving life" and believe in "living life" or you really know there difference between these two; Chris did....he wanted a true life ...he was sad man when he had "all that " which he left behind and was much happier when he was penniless... Its a journey inside a soul with the vessel of nature to live a beautiful & positive life. A must watch.
An Incredibly emotional film
This is one of greatest masterpiece by master of Cinema V Shantaram. Made in 70s it explores a complex web love, sex and relationships. Why and how people lose the respect in their own eyes, of choices or lack of choices people make in their life.
Its a rather simple story of educated , intellectual man who is regarded by everybody and himself perhaps as ideal man, but inside this image of himself he is still just a man, and that why his life turns upside down when he is seduced by a strip dancer , rather euphemism for being just short of a prostitute. He could not control his instinctive urge for her and falls for her charm but at same could not define what relationship he sought with her. He feels jealousy , anger when he sees her with other men but could not determine if what he had for her is just lust or love.
Then some turns of events took place where he has to choose between lust for this dancer and his respectful place as a ideal man in society. He chooses first but later find out that he cant live a life like a pimp , without respect and dignity. It raises some really thought provoking of whats meaning of human life without respect. Can a man live without dignity ? Is such life worth living or death with respect is better? In one of the most emotional scenes of movie actor sees dog eating besides him and wonders how is he different from dog and realizes this isn't life but a cage (pinjara). Losing all respect one had is worse than never having it at first place. Being brought to her level , she realizes this isn't what she wanted from this relationship but then no can turn back wheel of time and once lost can never be gained again. In end he chose to die as a image of person as he was rather than what really became of him so that people who believed in him doesn't lose faith in characters of men. A epitome of quote 'either you die a hero or live long to see yourself turn into villain'. This movie shows that journey though the corridors of lust & love.
Its a must watch movie for anyone who wants to explore complex web love , life and life with respect and love with meaning and how all of this can be turned upside down by a very basic human urge of sex. A masterpiece & classical Greek tragedy.
