One of my favourite interviews @festivaldecannes was with Werner Herzog - he’s 76, has finished 3 films in the last 12 months and was going through the gruelling publicity rounds with enthusiasm - he described himself as a soldier on duty.  He also said that making Family Romance, LLC took him back to the 70s when he was making films like Aguirre, the Wrath of God because there was freedom and life crept into the movie. After decades of making movies, he continues to push himself relentlessly! #comingsoon on @filmcompanion #film #festival #artist #bestjobever

  • #BengaliMovieRecco by @chaudhurishantanuray:  Based on a story by Buddhadeb Basu, Ekti Jiban (1990), set in the 1930s, deals with the life of a Sanskrit teacher, Gurudas, who while taking a Bengali literature class discovers the absence of a dictionary in Bengali and sets to compile one. Though the film was directed by Raja Mitra and starred Soumitra Chatterjee, it is interesting that Satyajit Ray too had planned to make a film on the life of Haricharan Bandyopadhyay (named Gurudas in the film), who compiled the first comprehensive dictionary in Bengali. Ray wanted to cast Kanu Bandopadhyay in the lead. The problem arose as the character had to age as the story progressed, and Kanu was already old when Ray was planning the film. When Soumitra asked Ray to take him, Ray said that just as it would be difficult for Kanu to look young, it might be difficult for Soumitra to age convincingly, given that the kind of make-up required wasn’t available in India at the time. Eventually, Soumitra ended up enacting what has come to be considered his most ‘epic’ performance. #bengalimovie #moviereccomendation
