Cineasts like me make their mistakes too. Take for example what happened a few days ago. After a marathon movie run (a twist to AJ‘s form of marathon movie watching- I do this on consecutive evenings of the week) that consisted of movies such as Requiem for a Dream (2000), Fight Club (1999), Saturday Night Fever (1977), Dil Chahta Hai (2001), The Karate Kid (1984), Stepmom (1998)…. I made the doggoned mistake of watching The Mistress of Spices (2005). 😐
Apart from all the rotten tomatoes slung at Ms. Rai (might I add, the ERSTWHILE Ms. Rai and the latest Mrs. Bachchhan), including the choicest of comments by Mr. Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian; I was left wondering if the moral of the story was that you can actually have your cake, gobble it up… and then ask for seconds too.
Wouldn’t want to catch myself doing this again..! Next up: Coyote Ugly!! 🙂
