L.A. Rebellion (1967-1991).
As Above, So Below (1973)
dir. Larry Clark.
Killer of Sheep (1978)
dir. Charles Burnett.
Passing Through (1977)

To Sleep With Anger (1990)

Key directors of the L.A. Rebellion Movement include:
Charles Burnett, Zainabu Irene Davis, Larry Clark, Ben Caldwell, Julie Dash and Billy Woodberry.
Spurred by the momentum of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, UCLA produced young African-American filmmakers with things to say and a nuanced, skilled way of demonstrating it. Billy Woodberry’s marriage drama ‘Bless Their Little Hearts’ shifted the conversation from the ‘blaxploitation’ films of the 70s towards the Spike Lee/John Singleton rejuvenation of the 80s. Burnett said that the L.A Rebellion movement aimed to “change the way Americans saw black people”. The movement became an integral springboard for African-American filmmakers. The New York Times describes Charles Burnett as ‘the nation’s least-known great filmmaker and most gifted black director’
Review: Brilliant and Beautiful but equally haunting.
Chintu ka Birthday is the story of a six-year boy stuck in Iraq with family at the times of Saddam’s fall. It's April 2004. US-led allied forces have been in Iraq for a year now. All Indians have been brought home, so says the Indian government. But in authenticity, the story is different.
Chintu ka Birthday is hysterical at the same time equipollently haunting. Chintu ka Birthday is an arduous movie to review because although it has its heart at the right place the constant flipflopping between comedy and thriller made me slightly uncomfortable. The idea of a sweet, small Indian family of five endeavouring to celebrate its youngest member's birthday in a war-torn Iraq soon after the fall of Saddam Hussein is a unique one. And I love how the film takes place within the span of a few hours and yet does not lose optical discernment of time. I don't ken who comes first in acting here when you have Vinay Pathak as the father who will remind you of your paternal figure, or the supremely talented Tillotama Shome whose one smile is enough to make you fall in love with whatever character she is playing or Bisha Chaturvedi the daughter whose expressions have been shot so well you will love that particular scene when she's visually examining her father, that brave man who just rolled some magic into the wind because all he wants is to celebrate the birthday or Seema Bhargava as the grandparent is equally happy and afraid of the situation. The Cinematography by Siddharth Dhiwan is to the point and perfectly shows characters emotion. Editing of the film is done to the core, there is no time in the movie that you will feel bore or left-out. The Other supporting cast integrates up to the brilliancy of the movie. A film where you can find happiness in small things. A film where you know your problems are way too smaller than the world and try to overcome it. A film where the father will do whatever possible to bring jubilance to his family. A film which shows family is important no matter what. A film where blaming others is not always a solution to the problems. A film where diminutive acts matter. A Must Watch.
Pi sits on his makeshift raft, which floats at a distance but remains tethered to the boat in which Richard Parker sleeps. He’s terrified of him, and rightly so - after all he is a hefty hungry Bengal tiger, who has forced Pi out and proclaimed the boat territory for himself. On top of this, they both face the unknown dangers of a vast open sea. The odds are not in Pi’s favour.⠀
And yet, Pi shows a deep love and respect for the natural world, despite it being the biggest threat to his life in the film. It may be because of his exposure to animals at an early age or perhaps, it is his omnist religious disposition. Pi’s journey with Richard Parker is not easy but is deeply illuminating. After a while, he even comes to rely on the company and the sense of purpose that the tiger poses, despite feeling threatened at first and harbouring thoughts of getting rid of him. Pi realises that although their might is unequal in power, their lives are intricately tethered to each other, just like the vessels that carry them.⠀
Eventually Richard Parker too, accepts the sharing of his territory. Both come to a mutual understanding and compromise with each other, even if it's not verbal and explicit. They learn to respect each other’s roles and discover a way to balance their insecurities, as they suddenly find themselves in an ecosystem which is hostile for both. This allows them to coexist in harmony, showing us that if we want to stay afloat on the raft of life, we have to respect the boundaries of the natural world.⠀

Breaking Bad (2008-2013) 5 Seasons, 62 Episodes
Runtime: 43-58 minutes
Showrunner: Vince Gilligan
Starring: Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn, Dean Norris, Bob Odenkirk, Giancarlo Esposito, Jonathan Banks
Genre : Crime, Drama, Thriller
Breaking Bad tells an engrossing story of Walter White, a worn-down high school chemistry teacher from Albuquerque and his transformation into a drug kingpin. Throughout its five-season run, the show explores both his growth, financial and in self-confidence, and decay, moral and physical, as well as the repercussions that his actions have on the people he cares about most.
When all was said and done, Breaking Bad ended perfectly, giving most of its characters satisfying closures to their complex narrative arcs. The end result is an epic Shakespearean-like tragedy that unfolds at its own pace, fitted for a flat screen for viewing at the comfort of your home.
BlacKkKlansman (2018) dir. Spike Lee
There’s a scene in BlacKkKlansman where white supremacists are having their version of a team building exercise, and they’re watching scenes of a Birth of a Nation (1915). They cheer as the “heroic” Klansmen ride to the rescue of some innocent women, saving her from vicious slaves. I think this film is as relevant today as it was when the day it was released, and unfortunately, it will continue to be so for the future. Someone once said that art comes at the cost of great pressure and strife, yet no matter how much I love film, I cannot justify these terrible events in exchange for subjectively great “art.” There is no art in suffering, nor is there justice in racism. This is a truth that Spike Lee as a director, as a writer, and as a person understands, and with every film he directs, he is doing his best to show that truth to the viewers. This film is based on the autobiography of Detective Ron Stallworth (John David Washington), who managed to trick the Klan into believing he was one of them. It’s a brilliant premise, and I can’t get over the process through which all of it comes together. I won’t spoil that for you. Some might say that you should watch this film because it’s relevant, and while it is relevant, I have to say - it’s also a damn good movie. .

Donnie Brasco (1997)
An undercover agent infiltrates the mafia successfully.
But as he moves up the ranks in the mafia, the line gets blurred i.e. he gradually becomes whom he's pretending to be.
This movie ain't "just another undercover cop story".
To me this is "The Godfather of undercover cop movies", the movie directors and new movies look up to and derive from.
The movie portrays the truth almost as it is (85% according to the real undercover agent himself).
But this movie just makes you long that this couldn've been the truth,and the reason is the tale and the actors.
Not just the main characters, everyone's perfect,every scene,every second's surreal and memorable.
You could literally see the agent's transformation what he's supposed to be pretending.
Especially with the "forget about it" scene, one of the many iconic scenes.
And unlike most movies,this movie also shows the real life troubles of undercover agents.
I've lost count of the number of times I've watched this one and trust me,you'll too.
