Amal H (gb) wrote: Loved it for the excellent writing involved..My only regret was my failure in understanding hindi which held me from enjoying the words as they were conceived by the writer in the original language...The writing skills of anurag kashyap in this one was not limited to the narrative alone..The movie was complemented by finely written songs which was so inseparably interwoven with the visuals..So much was lost in translation but the impact of the lyrics was evident even with english subtitles...I have lately started to believe colour is often a distraction in movies.. The result of colour cinematography is either astounding visuals which distracts the audience or it leaves us with a blunt image where the subject fails to gather attention..But the way Anurag has used colour in gulaal was admirable..Often in the movie vivid colours were used to accentuate the emotions without seeming to obvious enough to pose as a distraction.And of course it worked well with the concept of the movie...Overall Gulaal is a very satisfying movie, although it doesnt end well..Recommended stuff..Dont use the subtitles if u can understand hindi, the songs are that good!I lost so much time trying toread the lyrics in english and repeat the sequence to get the full impact of the music...

This is not a cliche, sappy Christmas movie, and William's character is a bit cantankerous, but it's hilarious if you're not looking for a friggin' Christmas movie with deep meaning. For all those self righteous critics, all I can say is bah hum bug!

Mark A (gb) wrote: Grim, gritty, smart, and full of surprises, Tim Roth plays a very rich, very smart young man being questioned by two detectives who aren't all that they seem on the surface. The detectives (Chris Penn and Michael Rooker) are investigating a gruesome murder for which they have few leads. Tim Roth's character, Wayland, becomes the prime suspect although the evidence is weak. We are never sure who is in charge of the interrogation, as Wayland is very manipulative and the detectives are not squeaky clean, either. This one had the viewer hooked from start to finish.
