My notes from Singapore South Asian International Film Festival (SGSAIFF) 2018
In this article I argue that Pa Ranjith’s filmography is never lacking in form, even if such complaints abound.
I wonder why we seem to be seeing the same few stories over and over, when there are several more unfolding at any given moment in Chennai.
My notes from the Singapore South Asian International Film Festival 2017 and a panel discussion involving Adoor Gopalakrishnan, Girish Kasaravalli, Leena Yadav and Prasanna Vithanage.
I write about the Thai film Malila The Farewell Flower, one of the films in competition at the Singapore International Film Festival 2017.
I write about the Israeli film Scaffolding, one of the films in competition at the Singapore International Film Festival 2017.
I write about the Iranian film Disappearance, which won the award for Best Asian Feature at SGIFF 2017.
Shanmugha Raja was so impressed by the character of Prince Myshkin in Fyodor Dostoevsky’s The Idiot that when he began his film career, he decided to rechristen himself as Mysskin.
Mysskin daubs a criminal investigation with generous splashes of philosophy.
