‘Never Let Me Go’ – My review

A close friend suggested me this movie and duly warned me that is ‘slow’ and could turn ‘gloomy’. I watched its trailer online and read few reviews of the author. I wasn’t sure I would like it. But I watched it anyway.

And I loved it!

More than anything, the fictional concept of organ donation was amazing and was handled with respect; well executed; emotions galore. Saying anything more would be a spoiler.

I haven’t read the book, so I don’t know if the movie did justice. But I loved it and would recommend it to anyone who likes meaningful and soulful flicks.

Does ‘The Making’ make it less special?

Came across this article in today’s newspaper.

It had me thinking. I generally am excited to see ‘makings’ and ‘behind the scenes’. I, in fact, make it a point to go to IMDb and look at these extra stuff. It helps me relive the movie.

But, on the flip side, I started wondering whether the above is right.

Imagine seeing a very serious and moving flick and then watch clips of its making which are generally hilarious. It takes away the feel and magic of the movie. May be it is better we confine ourselves to the movie alone?
