Movies and Dance

Hi.I used to be very critical of Sj's selection of movies in our blockbuster queue.But i have to accept that i just loved the last couple of movies he selected.I watched Cold Mountain on Monday and The English Patient yesterday.Though i loved both the movies, I dont have words to describe The English Patient.Its just amazing.This is one movie i enjoyed so well after "Before The Devil Knows You Are Dead".When it was the acting excellence in BTDKYD that marvelled, The English Patient scored in direction too.This is surely one of the best movies 9 have ever seen in my life.I dont regret not watching it before cuz i think at a younger age i couldn't have felt the essence of the movie.The depth of love is so vast that we forget their is the bitterness of betrayal in it.I was under this impression that i could enjoy just comedies.But these two movies made me completely understand my choices better.Sissy helped me watch The Girl Interrupted.I was very predujiced about the movie till i watched.I was sure i wouldn't like it.But i surprised myself by liking the movie and i think Anjelina Jolie was just superb in it.Thanks Sissy.






The dance classes have started and the good news is that we have 3 students now.We started the class with one girl on last sunday.Yesterday the girl's mother called up and said there are 2 more girls who would want to come.That was a great news for my friend and me.By the way, incase any of you feel you like to try to try your hand on the Indian classical dance form, Bharatanatyam, you can try this beautiful site by Anjali.She has been dancing fro 10 years now and is taking online dance lessons for FREE.Though nothing can actually replace a guru, she does a great job by posting videos of each step and takes care of all the minute details.

You're very welcome for the movie referral. I, too, waited to see Girl, Interrupted thinking it wouldn't be much. But it was. I have yet to see the English Patient, but now I must. As a note, I just watched The Mist and I highly recommend that you DO NOT watch this movie. It's a horrible thing.
