To fill up this weekend's reading palate, we spoke to Anand Halve, co-founder, Chlorophyll, Brand and Communications Consultancy and asked him his reading menu for this weekend. Halve has picked up Pauline Kael's first collection of movie reviews (covering the period from year 1954-1965 in US), compiled in a book titled, 'I Lost It at the Movies'.
And why did he pick this particular dish for the weekend? Shares Halve, "A lot of film critics look at a film as a piece of creative art and critique a film based on that perspective. What's unique about Pauline Kael is that she places it in the context of society in addition to viewing it as a work of art."
He couldn't resist but quote an excerpt from the book, which is essentially a dialogue from, 'The Wild One', a Marlon Brando starrer reviewed by Kael:
"What exactly are you rebelling against?"
Marlon Brando's character - "So, what have you got?"
So, that's the book on Halve's reading list this weekend, and what have you got?
