No Smoking - Notepad

wogma rating: Buy the DVD already (?)
quick review:

It is fascinating to go to a movie and not see a story but the picturization of an idea. The visualization then is just a starting point for the audience's imagination. My suggestion - don’t look for a linear description of events, look for how this idea, this concept takes shape.

What if a guy is so obsessed with his smoking that he just can't get over the obsession, let alone the smoking?

What Worked

  • The sunset and movement of clouds was awesome.
  • Brandless cigarettes!
  • The fade out of the jazz music while K is talking to his wife.
  • Ranvir Shorey's crossed eyes!
  • The breaking of the car windshield.
  • The special effect of humans turning into flames

What did not

  • What can one say when the whole movie is a figment of somebody's imagination. Everything is a continuity jerk. Or nothing is.
