Movies and books this week...

Cold Mountain by Anthony Minghella (One of my fav directors, the movie is like a beautiful painting, each detail meticulously thought out)
Some like it hot by Billy Wilder (The original comedy that inspired a gazillion remakes in every language possible :)..a salute to Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon...what a pair!)
The bicycle thief by Vittorio De Sica (Undoubtedly one of the great classics, an inspiration to all movie buffs)
Chocolat by Lasse Hallstrom (...because I love Johnny Depp and Juliette Binoche)
Vanilla Sky by Cameron Crowe (Very disappointing, couldn't wait for it to end)
Udaan by Vikramaditya Motwane (Refreshing and off beat, worth the watch)
Beauty and the Beast (1991) by Walt Disney feature animation (Big fan of animation/musicals, a classic)

Corner Shop by Roopa Farooki (Brilliant writing, right mix of funny, sad, real and imaginary)
The Counsel of Strangers by Gouri Dange (so-so, can be missed)
Saraswati Park by Anjali Joseph (Enchanting, fluid writing, disappointing ending)
Luck by Dhruba Hazarika (Fascinating stories from the North East, simple and unpretentious)
