Impressive

After a dry patch of watching some not so good movies I chanced upon couple of movie which just impressed me in more than one way.



The first movie was "Doubt" starring Philip S Hoffman and Meryl Streep. Though the movie looks like based on true events I was glad it was not. It has some great acting from the stalwarts and it is a pity that Hoffman is no more.

The second one was "In the name of my father". This movie based on true events is scary. It is so difficult to think that the Police can go to any extent.

Explicit Movies

Recently got the chance to watch a Korean movie "The Handmaiden" and a French movie "Blue is the warmest color". Both movies have some very explicit scenes.

There are movies which keeps these scenes just for some shock value. The above two movies has much more than these explicit scenes. I do not think that there is a need to have such elaborate scenes to make the audience understand how the protagonists feel. Our movies have been doing it for ages to show the connection between two individuals without having to resort to explicit scenes.
