The White Tiger

The White Tiger ★★★½

Adarsh Gourav gives a 5 star performance imho.

Watching this movie and Judas and the Black Messiah have me thinking about the ways artists/filmmakers whatever confront or attempt to confront the Huge Ideas, especially re: capitalism and all the mess that comes with it, and then what questions we want the audience to ask themselves. And the ways we (yes that's what I meant by artists/filmmakers, whatever!) try and succeed and fail and somewhat succeed with getting all of that across especially when you're making movies for corporations which I don't know, most days is a huge success. Making things is hard!

Also hard not to watch this and think about the first time I went to Nigeria, feeling so shocked by how apparent the differences in class were. We like to pretend it's not like that here but so obviously it is etc etc etc you know how it goes

Anyway I liked this a lot, I don't know what I'm saying I don't want to have to look smart on here this is my letterboxd!!!!!!
