Few thoughts on movies I really liked at @MumbaiFilmFest this year:
#LesMiserables:
Has to be the most powerful film of the year! Think of films like La Haine, Do The Right Thing and Training Day. A tense cop thriller set in Paris Suburbia with an explosive last act that you aren't prepared for. A solid debut from Ladj Ly!
#Bacurau:
The only thing I read about the film before watching was that it's a Brazilian western and someone said it's Brazil's version of Lagaan. I can say that's true with this film that plays out like a Kurosawa/John Carpenter mash up and it's damn entertaining!

Who would've thought a film shot on some mobile phones would take your breath away. #MidnightTraveler is astonishing, heart grabbing, without one dull minute. It's the story of an Afghan refugee family on the run to safety over three years, which they filmed on their own phones.
You can't help feel rage when you see the two little girls trying to play with the soccer ball within what is essentially a maximum-security prison of high concrete walls and barbed wire In Hungary.
But it's not all outrage. The film records the dark humor, danger & boredom of life on the run. The little girls sing & play games in a smuggler's taxi with their dad locked in the trunk for safety as they pass through Taliban territory where dad has a death sentence on his head.
