    Racer and the Jailbird

    ★★

    Going by the title, Belgian director Michaël R. Roskam’s Racer and the Jailbird sounds like an adrenaline pumping crime actioner. While the film does features racing cars and near-death-heist sequences, it is more inclined towards the romance between it’s two stylish, well-matched leads. Sadly, the film is neither engaging enough as a racing-cum-heist thriller, nor is emotionally numbing or heartbreaking as a drama about the tragedies of unconditional love.

    "There's nothing wrong with my life. I should be happy. But there's this sadness and I don't know where it comes from."

    A lovely, melancholic stroll down the love that coulda, shoulda, woulda. If you are on a strict - one romantic movie a year diet, make sure that this is the one.

    Here's my haiku about Taika Waititi's film:

    It's called 'The Haiku by a guy who used to be fat.'

    Ricky Baker and uncle hec,
    Get themselves broken and chased.
    They sing, dance, sleep and hunt,
    Coz that's how they grow up and stint.
    Witty, sharp and bittersweet,
    This is some awesome gangsta shit.
