  • Neil Bahadur's rating of the film Monsoon

    Virtuoso, brilliant filmmaking, but one section of the film tries to wrap everything so quickly in order to get to another plot point that it almost kills the film. But otherwise, brilliant, with some of the most striking cinematography I've ever seen. Very much akin to the work of Sternberg and Mizoguchi. When characters enter aestheticized worlds, they simply become more real.
