  1. inquisita's rating of the film Rat-Trap

    Fear reeks of carrion, luring detritivores and scavengers to sneak in, plunder, take apart. If Aravindan's "Throne of Capricorn" outlines apodemia (home leaving to meet w/ worldviews and assess their corruption), Gopalakrishnan's "Rat-Trap" details epidemia - panicky coming back, maintaining family united by strict celibate quarantine. Eventually, what looked like safety becomes an oppressive invertebrating paranoia.

  2. apexa's rating of the film Rat-Trap

    A brilliant illustration of the disintegrating feudalist society of Southern India that I think beautifully and subtly manages to create a devastating story that crescendos with its finale. The beginning and ending parallel is really just breathtaking.
