ManiRatnam, Syriana #1

  • Woken up at 4:00 in the morning by wheezing, I had no other option but to watch 'Syriana'. I don't know if it's the convoluted, not-so-direct plot or my inability to pay attention to the dialogues, I didn't get a complete understanding of a couple of threads. A second viewing is necessary before I can jot down my thoughts.
  • I realize that ManiRatnam has been using his camera to add/provide a slick/glossy feel in the last 10 years. It's like watching his movies through a rich filter, yeah, they're visually arresting but somehow his camera doesn't capture the authenticity of what is shot.
  • As Hugh says, a story without love isn't worth telling.
