Top30 Favorite Film Discoveries of 2013
5. Mind Game
First thought when watching this: What the f*ck am I watching?
4. Hey Ram
This epic of a movie is nearly 4-hours long and has no musical sequences, making it a very VERY dense movie about a man who loses his friend and his lover in the midst of political and religious turmoil. But what a journey of forgiveness and redemption amidst the violence and hatred.
Thank you, Rani, for having this in your filmography and introducing me early to Kamal Hassan. 
3. Red Sorghum
Another Zhang Yimou movie I had been postponing, but this time for lack of time. Plus, older Zhang material tends to be more emotionally draining, so I knew I had to be on the right mindset to absorb the artistry behind this. It’s an amazing film… oh, who am I kidding? I love tragedy embellished by lush visuals such as the ones provided by Zhang.
Fictional tragedy gives me a sense of thankfulness for having the boring life that I lead.
