Caught another brilliant film the other day. Kiarostami's Close-up. Not so much a film as a documentary. Or was it a film? Thought it was brilliant in its ingenuity and treatment. And was deeply impressed by Kiarostami's honesty in the interview that followed (in the DVD).

PLUS: Saw Andrei Rublev after 12 years. Strangely, found the movie about an hour-and-a-half too long. Bad, when it's over three hours. Worse, because I couldn't keep my eyes open after about an hour. Remember liking it ages back in Calcutta during some festival or the other.
