Comment on: Lore gets first BFI Sleeper award
Totally agree. It's a terrific film that needs to be seen by a wider audience. It's good if this kind of intervention is possible because of digital distribution.
Comment on: Bollywood's boom and bust
Sorry for pedantry, but Endhiran (Robot) is not a Bollywood film. The Tamil industry works in a different way despite the tie-up between Eros and Ayngaran. My understanding is that the fan movements in the South are more organised and behave differently to the responses of individual fans to Bollywood/Hindi stars. I'm also under the impression that the Indian business press have recognised that there are two distinct media industries in India and that the South still tends to do its own thing. Nobody ever seems to mention the policies of State Governments but they do have a role to play in the emergence of global Indian companies.
