Underrated movies I
I have only seen the first two movies from Tarsem Singh Dhandwar, The Cell  and The Fall , but I think both are underrated classics. Perhaps predictably coming from a director who began his career on music videos and adverts, both films are visually overloaded, sumptuous, feasts for the eye. But despite being pretty much flops at the box office, both [one a psychological ‘horror’ story and the other a fantasy/fairy tale] have intelligent stories filled with multi layered symbolism galore. Particularly effective are shots that ‘surrealistically’ transition between locations/objects ie a close-up shot of a fawn bed cover that merges into a dunned desert landscape. Stylish, opulent and sensual films.
