Mr B

Anruag Kashyap's Gulaal review is in...check it out.

When you watch Gulaal, you are never looking for brave camera movements, forced perspectives, depth of images, innovative angles, startling shot divisions or diegetic wizardry. Nor is his art-design the most unique, usually punctured with neon-signs, corners in shade, a throwback or two to the counter-culture era of the late 60s or early 70s, usually manifested in the form of tributes to icons as diverse as: Hendrix, Fosse, Floyd, The Doors, The Beatles. Regardless of their relevance in the current scenario, but present, nonetheless, for the automatic richness they would add to any texture. Read More

How I wish it did! We will make that kind of a film later. Surely. This is a live-action film, and the still has been manipulated. Sorry for disappointing you. :(
Also, great news as far as the release of Zhangke's films are concerned. Just wish they weren't so exorbitantly priced.
