Top30 Favorite Film Discoveries of 2014
20. The Elements Trilogy
Who can really resist a trilogy of films surrounded by controversies stemming from the lesbian story within Hindu culture and symbols, the study of religious tension in the area, and the exploration of widows within Hindu beliefs.
- Fire (1996)
- Earth (1998)
- Water (2005)
19. The Syrian Bride (הכלה הסורית)
From the topic of widows, we go to brides~ in this case, a bride-to-be crossing the Israel-Syrian border. Hiam Abbass is fantastic in here.
18. The Rose Tattoo
I swear~ I will eventually get to Anna Magnani’s main filmography.
My gosh, Konkona Sen Sharma’s acting is so addictive. Plus, her ability with accents could probably match Toni Collette’s ability with accented English. My pick of Konkona movies are a handful, but REALLY- she’s a delight to watch.

16. Devils on the Doorstep (鬼子来了)
I have never in my life thought of the idea of The Nanjing Massacre  — Japanese invaders et all — and think that it would -somehow- make me laugh. Even funnier is that it totally caught me off guard, I was prepped to cry them a river.
I mean, look at THIS trailer.
