Siraj Syed reviews Billy Lynn’s Long Half-Time Walk by Ang Lee

Siraj Syed reviews Billy Lynn’s Long Half-Time Walk by Ang Lee >“Americans are children, who must go somewhere else to grow up, and sometimes die.” > “How does anyone ever know anything—the past is a fog that breathes out ghost after ghost, the present a freeway thunder run at 90 mph, which makes the future the ultimate black hole of futile speculation.” >“It is sort of weird, being honored for the worst day of your life.” Trust Ang ...

KAKARAM (Life Force)

Director: Donia Mili.
I plunged myself---heart, body and soul---into the Amazon jungle I feared so much…I drank with the shamans as much of their sacred beverage,  ayahuasca, as I could get my hands on…. trying to reach my subconscious, trying to understand the Universe, trying to heal myself…DESPERATELY  trying to forget the corruption, the greed, the swarms of stinging, biting insects, the avalanches, and rattletrap, smoky buses. Not to mention the kidnapping. Kakaram combines  the stunning images of the rainforest with humorous animated sequences  and interviews with best-selling author John Perkins, internationally acclaimed painter and healer Pablo Amaringo, as well as a host of shamans, healers, derelicts and anyone else who would stand in front of the microphone. From the streets of Quito to the jungle trails of the Ecuadorian Amazon, the movie follows the film-maker in her quixotic quest to find  "untouched" indigenous communities.  Kakaram chronicles both her inner and outer journeys as her original vision and plans evolve in surprising and fascinating ways.
