    The World of Apu

    ★★★★

    This one is my favorite of the trilogy because I feel like this is the point where the storytellers really knew who the main character was. I can definitely tell it came out a few years after the second one because this seems like the work of a more mature, experienced, director. It can be viewed through kind of a biographical lens, exploring how being young and naive is a precious period of time, and how it’s only a matter…

    ★★★½

    I liked this better than Pather Panchali, and I think the reason why is because I liked the way it was focused on the relationship between Apu and his mother. Looking back on it, I think the first one seemed a tiny bit cluttered and unfocused. Ray took a different turn with this movie, and I definitely can’t wait for part 3.

    I gave this movie a 4.5 the last time I saw it.

    What the hell was I thinking?

    It never ceases to amaze me how this movie is so great and was made for so little. I also can't believe this is only my 4th favorite Tarantino movie.

    You ever see a movie that's so inexplicably beautiful and resonating that it takes you like three hours to come up with something to say about it and even then you still have nothing?

    Ladies and Gentlemen,
