    For me, an interesting test of how much a film can work when you view it simply through the strength of its images on an individual level rather than as a whole.

So much work in doubling, both in narrative and character arcs as well as in reclamations. Fascinating. Don't think it needs to be said how incredibly the Rajamouli's action sequences are, he's practically setting…
