Gritty Realism in Cinema

Chandni Chowk to China Check out the trailer for Chandni Chowk to China, an insanely strange and silly but oddly-appealing-in-a-WTF?-kinda-way fusion of Hong Kong martial-arts movie and Indian musical comedy, about a poor Delhi street vendor who becomes convinced he’s the reincarnation of an ancient Chinese Duplicitywarrior. Gordon Liu seems to be playing a cross between Yul Brynner and the hat-throwing guy from Goldfinger.

Another film that looks like it might be fun is this Ocean’s-Eleven-esque-looking film Duplicity. Any preview that starts out in front of the Pantheon automatically biases me in its favour. Seeing Clive Owen as an MI6 agent makes me wonder how he’d play James Bond ….
