12. Charulata (1964)
Satyajit Ray and his women never cease to amaze me. They are intelligent, steadfast, strong, gentle and complicated. In other words, rather than being glamorous showpieces, they are humans. Charulata(Madhabi Mukherjee) is the sharp and beautiful wife of Bhupati (Shailen Mukherjee), an upper-class newspaper publisher ad a political enthusiast, who loves his wife but is too busy to give her time. Things change when Bhupati’s cousin Amal (Soumitra Chatterjee) visits them. Set in the period of Bengali Renaissance, this adaptation of Tagore’s ‘Nastanirh’, this movie taps into the emotions of loneliness, desire, love and guilt. The screenplay is elaborate, with cultural and literary allusion, and makes brilliant use of deep focus in a Victorian-style set.
11. Cape Fear
This movie from director Martin Scorsese is the remake of director J. Lee Thompson’s suspenseful film noir from James Webb’s screenplay, based on John D. MacDonald’s novel “The Executioners”. It stars Robert De Niro (who was nominated for Oscar for his portrayal of psychotic Max Cady), Nick Nolte and Jessica Lange in lead roles. It follows story of a psychopathic rapist Max who is released after 14 years in jail. He’s convinced that his defense lawyer Sam Bowden (Nick Nolte) did not defend him to the best of his ability. So, he starts stalking Sam and his family and wants some payback. This brutally suspenseful film is surely worth your time!
