Uncut Gems

Boy! It has been a while since I saw a proper hero with proper goals, proper skills and proper insanity. That’s a proper film. The Safdie Brothers, the co-writers and directors, are great con artists. I have been through this road previously as well but never have I ever been so confident in my words.…

Mrs. Fletcher

Following follows the one and only season. Tom Perrotta, the creator is working on an important project. It shouldn’t have come off that way but it does. There is nothing wrong but nothing right either. So after the first chapter, the series pretty much gives its trajectory away, consoling us on what kind of show…

Little Women

Christmas. Family. Tear jerking storyline. Christmas. Fast paced narration. Loveable characters. And Christmas. What’s not to love! The director Gillian Armstrong’s version of Louisa May Alcott’s novel Little Women is probably the closest edition that I could find. Now, though I am not aware of the other versions, I could still stand behind that statement.…

The Bourne Ultimatum

Okay! So forget everything you know and expect from Jason Bourne. This is entirely new. It is entertaining. It is thrilling. The director Paul Greengrass had an epiphany. That’s an exaggeration. But, stay with me. Whatever that I had mentioned or you have experienced in the previous two chapters, he has broken down into a…
