Your weekend reading list

Anand Halve, co-founder, Chlorophyll, Brand and Communications Consultancy is dedicating this weekend in reading Pauline Kael's 'I Lost It at the Movies'

Your weekend reading list

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?
