How bout a thread where we each propose a single film that most of us have probably not seen, and explain why the rest of us should find it. I'll start: JINNAH (1998) For those of you who liked "Gandhi," this would be a great one to watch alongside. It retells the story of Indian Indepence and subsequent partition from the perspective of the "father of Pakistan," Muhammed Al Jinnah. Again, a white Englishman plays the role of the title Indian; this time it's Christopher Lee (Saruman from LOTR) who is fantastic as the complex and divided leader of Muslim India. The form of the film is also more playful and experimental than Attenborough's "I'm making an EPIC!" style. This one opens with Jinnah's death, and the film involves an examination of his "case" for admittance to heaven (think "Defending Your Life"). Shashi Kapoor, probably the biggest Bollywood star of his generation plays Jinnah's judge and jury. Specifically, the film investigates Jinnah's blame for the partition massacres that followed independence, which left about 1 million people dead--truly one of the great atrocities in world history. Attenborough's film of course absolves "Gandhi" entirely, putting the blame squarely on the Muslim leader's shoulders. So this film is kind of an answer to "Gandhi." The point is worth noting that while Gandhi preached religious tolerance and diversity, his whole philosophy of satyaghra (sp?) comes down from Hindu teachings, and suggested pretty clearly to India's Muslim minority that India would be a Hindu nation. Anyway, a tough one to find, but worth the effort.
