"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

Review: Hotel Mumbai

byJason Adams

What scares us -- the communal us -- shifts through time.The 70s gave us Vietnam allegories likeThe Texas Chain Saw Massacre,while in the 80s Slasher Movies were all the rage as divorce numbers went up and women asserted their rights.Then there was so-called Torture Porn,which was all the rage while Bush & Cheney were throwing their waterboarding parties.So what now?It's hard not to see Grief as the theme of our current moment -- the great horror films of our age,films likeThe BabadookandHereditary,are profound ruminations on a world that's already slipped through our fingers -- a madness so close its breath is hot on your throat,and a knowledge that its our own failures,our own shortcomings,that brought this all down upon us.

Hotel Mumbaiis technically not a horror movie (look to Jordan Peele'sUs,whichChris just reviewed,for this weekend's official entry in that genre) but it sure operates like one...

BAFTA Winners: La La Land,Daniel Blake,and...Lion's Dev Patel!

Dev Patel struggles to find "words words words"when he wins the BAFTA.

Confession: Despite The Film Experience's devout love of awards season,亚博主页your host does not actually watch the BAFTAs.I gave up years ago when it was clear that they were never going to change their announce-the- winners and then tape-delay-broadcast-highlights-of-show.It's just not pure enough for my spiritual devotion to the holy act of passing out trophies.I can't stomach it.

The winners with commentary (and videos once they're available) follow...

Interview: The Real Saroo and Sue Brierley on Their Favorite Moments in 'Lion'

ByJose Solís.

David Wenham with the real Saroo and Sue Brierley whose story is told in "Lion"

If I didn't already know Nicole Kidman is a genius,I would've been convinced after meeting Sue Brierley,the real life woman who inspired the character she plays inLion.As I sat down to speak with Mrs.Brierley and her son Saroo (played by Dev Patel in the film),I was first struck by how Nicole perfectly captured her cadence,her soft voice and her piercing look,but then I was completely disarmed by her warmth.Watching her sit next to her son,and look at him with tenderness - she caressed his back,held his hand,and smiled constantly - perfectly encapsulates why the film is so successful.Their story simply needed to be told.

JOSE: Was it surreal to see your story on the big screen?

SAROO BRIERLEY: Yeah definitely,from writing a book,to seeing it turned into a movie,you want to be cautious when it's a personal story.We're humbled and touched by the reaction so far.
