A Potpourri of Vestiges FeatureJ. K. Simmons in CounterpartIn the duplicitous universe of Counterpartthere are two worlds, not unlike ours. They are called Alpha world and Prime world, respectively. At first, Prime world was created as exactly the mirror image of Alpha world, back in the late 1980s, by East German scientists.  But subsequently both started growing independently leading to some minor changes initially which gradually made way for much greater divergences.  But the catch is that people living in these worlds aren’t aware of the existence of the other world. This is done to ensure order and sanity intact. Only a handful of operatives on both the sides are aware of t...

A Potpourri of Vestiges ReviewBy Murtaza Ali KhanFeatured in IMDb Critic ReviewsSome of the most interesting audiovisual experiments that are happening around the world are being channelized through the medium of short films. A very unique short film that recently caught my attention is Unskin, written and directed by British filmmaker Elcid Asaei at Crimson Black Productions. What makes the film unique is how it seamlessly blends the world of narrative cinema with contemporary dance. A thought-provoking and visually striking story set in an alternative London, Unskin has been described by Elcid as “’A Christmas Carol’ meets ‘The Dark Knight’ in the ‘Twilight Zone...

A Potpourri of Vestiges ReviewBy Tanmay ShuklaFeatured in IMDb Critic ReviewsThe film opens with a cheering crowd. We follow a man from behind who sets the stage on fire upon his entry. The tight field-of-view exaggerates every slight camera motion to track the movements of Jackson Maine, who goes into a trance like state while singing with an acoustic guitar. This creative decision lends a certain intimacy to the film from the very beginning. We hear his deep, raspy voice, but we are not among the crowd, we see the crowd like he does. The energy flowing through his body and the spirited passion in his eyes is literally breathtaking to witness so close.After the show, Jackson ...

A Potpourri of Vestiges FeatureBy Vivaan ShahSpike Lee's movies are explosions of the id, it is speech unfiltered, voice uncared for; hence it does not care in return. There's nothing so sacred that Spike can't plumb it. He'd rather excavate it with the brute strength of a coal miner, hacking away at things with a pick axe and shovel things people wouldn't dare touch with a yard stick. And that's what makes him one of the bravest and most brilliant of directors. He's not afraid to examine the monster and bring him out in front of the lab lights to tickle his horns and poke at his nose. You could always sniff a strain of mongrel snouted misanthropy in his more biting scenes, and it was always...
