Today I went to see Rang de Basanti in Artesia. It was absolutely amazing in all sorts of ways. I'm a huge Aamir Khan fan so it wasn't going to take too much to sell me on it, but his co-stars were very impressive. As a reflection on when ordinary citizens are justified to taking to violence in the face of opression it's 10 times the movie V for Vendetta is. Not that that is terribly hard. I saw a trailer for RDB before Humko Tumse Pyaar Hai which was selling it as a college friends movie, which is a bit deceptive to say the least.

I also bought several movies, including Water which I am currently watching. It's about widows in preindependence India and I so know this isn't going to turn out well. I suspect I will end up sobbing on my sofa at the end of it.

I now also own Bunty aur Babli, Sarkar, and Dilwale Duhlhania le Jayenge. The woman at the shop threw in a DVD of SRK songs for nothing as well. I think she is hoping that I will come back and buy all the films that include the songs I like. She may not be wrong as I don't have a lot of will power when faced with racks of Bollywood movies.

ETA: I had to stop watching Water as I am pretty sure we're at the point where everything is going to go bad and I can't bear to see that. Whimper.
