https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ov0ulwyv_jg Last Sunday, Turner Classic Movies showed the movies of Satyajit Ray on what would have been his 100th birthday. "Apur Sansar" is the third and final "Apu" movie that began with "Panthar Panchali" in 1955. Apu is now a young man who has to quit University studies due to a lack of money. A college friend invites him to a relative's wedding, and Apu's life changes suddenly. It's a great end to the "Apu Trilogy" and reminds me of Stayajit Ray's last movie, "The Stranger" (1991).
Two men meet on a train headed for the U.S./Mexico border. One owns a dog and appears to be a decent, ordinary fellow. The other is a financier fleeing Scotland Yard for embezzling company funds. Thus begins a story full of twists and turns, as gray as real life. Who's the "good guy"? Who's the "bad guy"? Does the dog, Dolores know best? Check out this fine 1957 GB Film Noir tale...
