Symbiopsychotaxiplasm
I have been part of a movie-making adventure once, and the experience was a mixed one. Not that I was supposed to play any of the key roles of movie-making: I wasn't the director, or an actor, or a technical person, or even one of those guys who is in charg...

Happy Birthday to Sachchidananda Hirananda Vatsyayan 'Agyeya' (सच्‍चिदानन्‍द हीरानन्‍द वात्‍स्‍यायन c)
अज्ञेय के कुछ लेखों का संग्रहण करने वाली 'लेखक का दायित्व' नामक पुस्तक कुछ दिनों पहले वहीं से मिली। मैं अज्ञेय का लघु उपन्यास 'अपने अपने अजनबी' पहले पढ़ चुका था, पर कवि या आलोचक के रूप में उनके विचारों से पहले भेंट न हुई थी। इस पुस्तक में उनके काव्य आलोचना क...

Hi Shvetal, hope you are able to see my response. I recommend Zoe Heller's review of Gone Girl the movie on NYRB. She takes it apart well.

Notes on Noah Baumbach's "While We're Young" and the necessity of plotlessness
Noah Baumbach's 'While We're Young' is mostly swell, except the plottiness in the last third that soils a viewer's interpretation of the earlier, excellent parts. In its desire to have a story, to be a bit about things other than what it is really about, th...

Notes on 'Dum Laga Me Haisha'
The cinematography in the movie is regularly disappointing, not so much in the evoked colors but in the placement of the camera. The action happens too close to the screen, and there is a tendency to cut when a longer, distant shot would have heightened the...

Watching a pre-Nazi-era German adaptation of The Brothers Karamazov
I watched Der Mörder Dimitri Karamasoff (1931) a few days back, on Youtube. As the name suggests, the movie is a pre-Nazi-era German adaptation of The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevski. In the final shot, Dimitri, being sent off to Siberia in a train...
