Born of Sin: 'Satanic Verses'
The opening scene of Born of Sin has a drinking father and his daughter sitting in a car, perhaps for a kid day out. The mother, who is away for work, calls and asks the man if he can really take care of her. The two have a passively aggressive exchange, which we don't really listen to but can figure out. The Subject seems to be, the daughter. The mother doesn't trust this man as a responsible father and his actions do not prove her wrong either. I have to say that this opening scene reminded me of a brilliant Indian Film, Ugly, directed by Anurag Kashyap. Not that the film follows the same path afterward, but it sure began on a similar note. The things that happen next in 'Born of Sin' is a series of unfortunate events, including a bizarre satanic ritual that results in an almost comedic twist, which unleashes the hypocrisy of those who practice it, or maybe it doesn't.
