  1. Bruno's rating of the film The Cloud-Capped Star

    a febre nas escadas... apenas vi o filme uma vez, mas conservo-o tão vivo, mais de dois anos volvidos, também eu fiquei febril, mas a vontade me não chega para morrer, e é este um melodrama social? tão associal este desejo, de cortar todos os laços

  2. John Baldwin's rating of the film The Cloud-Capped Star

    Every moviegoer suspects that there are, in the great Out There, hidden masterpieces in the national cinema's of any number of countries waiting to be discovered. This film (available on DVD) is proof that this suspicion is no pipe dream.

  14. εξώτερο Διάστημα's rating of the film The Cloud-Capped Star

    in deep sadness there is no place for sentimentality / william s. burroughs. (for all my blind friends who see nothing more in this movie than a creepy melodrama.)

  15. Chai Is the Warmest Beverage's rating of the film The Cloud-Capped Star

    Kumar Shahani on the film: "The triangular division, taken from Tantrik abstraction, is the key to the understanding of this complex film. The inverted triangle represents the Indian tradition, fertility and the femininity principle. The breaking up of society is visualized as a three-way division of womanhood. The three principle woman [sic.] characters embody the traditional aspects of feminine power."

  16. Sudipto Basu's rating of the film The Cloud-Capped Star

    I always came to this film with the burden of realism before. Ghatak has more similarities with Fassbinder than he has with any other Indian director. Best experienced with two pegs down.
