Some images aren't loading for me. They appear to be all the images hosted on icmforum.com. Do others see them?
I had trouble yesterday also with some of the images on icmforum.com, now all are loading for me.

I would have expected this to attract more than just two votes considering how much Hitchcock is loved on this forum... but good to see it there.

I'm assuming it's one of the Apu trilogy, but can't decide which.

Perhaps 1 or 3. I'll go with 3, World of Apu.

I‘ve just seen this movie this week and was blown away. The best treatment of politics and economics I‘ve ever seen in a movie.

Nikhilesch stands for wisdom, political maturity and knowledge of ecomomic laws and peace. Sandip, the demagogue, stands for the opposite, like a satanic temptation. Bimala stands for the masses, the population, which with its dangerous half-knowledge (teached by Miss Gilby) is ever ready to be seduced by evil.

It becomes obvious that Bimala‘s education was a very superficial one (just like the kind of education we get in public schools), when Nikhilesch tried to explain to her why proctectionism hurts the poor. She has no counter-argument to offer, all she can do is mumble a „they will profit in the long run“, without offering an explanation of why or how this unlikely event will occur. Sound
economic think is substituted by wishful thinking and make-belief (It reminded my of a discussion concerning minimum-wages I had with a user on this forum). In the whole movie, no argument is provided for protectionism, one of Sandip‘s followers has only to say that „it‘s good for the country“. Again, we‘re left with no explanation of why or how.

Bimala closes her eyes to Sandip’s coercive strategies, she doesn‘t wanna know what‘s going on. This is a universal metapher, and like the whole movie, not only applicable to what was going on in India. It could stand fe for how the US populace handled the Vietnam war. When they published photographs of burnt and badly hurt children, the voters in the USA didn‘t care, they didn‘t wanted to know, what was going on.
But even when Bimala learns of the crimes, she still, in the beginning, keeps supporting Sandip. Just like the US populace keeps continuing to support wars (and in the process they‘re even willing to accept someone like Trump as president).

This unique masterpiece was and is rather badly received in India itself. Its critique of nationalism, protectionism and economic lunacy was and is too strong to swallow for the statist and nationalist intelligentsia which dominates public opinion.
But I don’t want to be too harsh with them, I don’t know what would happen if a similar movie were to be made in the west. Could we face its dismal truths? I doubt it.

I watched Lagaan just prior to Lonewolf‘s re-downloads. I was much sympathetic to the movies central themes: Anti-Imperialism and tax protestation. But I felt it was not for me, I found it very hyperbolic. I salute to what it‘s trying to do but I can give it only a mere 4.5/10 and no appearance on my list.

I'm surprised there are still non-Ray movies showing up. :whistling:
Should be at least one Ghatak and one Dutt film left as well...not sure about any more modern stuff.

I'm assuming Lagaan is the highest ranked Bollywood film, but maybe something like Devdas could still be coming? I'm not sure how many Rays we have left... I can think of at least 5, but I'm guessing there are a few more.

Yes, and Cloud-Capped Star. Wouldn't be surprised of the other 8 are all Ray but my knowledge in this area is hardly significant.

3 idiots is a masterpiece contrasted to The Lunchbox. I didn‘t like cheesiness of it.

6. The World of Apu
5. Aparajito
4. The Lonely Wife
3. The Big City
2. The Music Room
1. Pather Panchali
...right? Or did I miss any of those popping up earlier?

Think so. Flip 3 and 6 and that's what I'd guess the order too
