Description: "A feature-length deluge of incessant, brilliant bursts of photos (short takes and jump cuts, single frames in series, freeze-frames slightly altered between takes) it creates a Joyce-like dense and sombre mosaic of memory and sensory impressions, a texture instead of a plot, a dream-like flow of visually-induced associations often flashing by faster than they can be absorbed. Described by the director as an 'anxious allegory and chilling album of nostalgia,' its penetrating monomania is unexpectedly — subversively — realized to be a statement about American today: the alienation and atomization o technological consumer society is reflected in the very style of the film." - Amos Vogel, Movie as a Subversive Art

I don't know of many movies that discover behind the scenes of the prolific Indian movie industry, but I love the view into a fresh globe offered by this one. In general, I like the movies of Merchant-Ivory- they are almost everytime beautiful, well-crafted, well-acted and perfect at handling delicate topics matter, subtle emotions, and stories of hero growth and psychology. I think BOMBAY TALKIE is one of the best, on par with the soon triumphs of A ROOM WITH A VIEW, HOWARD'S END and REMAINS OF THE DAY. Visually, the film has that stunning, crisp, breath-taking combination of color, light and zone that made each frame of A ROOM WITH A VIEW so unbelievable to watch- and the beauty of the film's (BOMBAY TALKIE)visuals are especially great considering it was made in 1970. The test of music, singing and dance also bring an interesting quirkiness to the film, and support show the globe of the characters- all of whom are interesting, especially the hero, his wife Marla (who gives a stunning performance), and his ex-girlfriend (the stage between her and the hero, once Lucia has left him to follow a guru, is one of the most beautifully executed late night conversation scenes I've ever seen, and gives so much insight into a relatively insignificant character's life and relationships- on par with the drinking stage in Hal Hartley's SIMPLE MEN). Most wonderful about this movie was the screenplay- one of Ruth Prawer Jbvala's better ones, well-directed (as usual) by James Ivory. It is poetic, when it needs to be, sinister when the moment calls for it, and it ties nicely into the ending with perfect stops along the method to comment on Hollywood movie making, sham-spiritualism quests by Westerners in India, the loneliness of art, the stupidity of petty, fear-controlled people, and the destructive quality of unhealthy obsession. A fine, enjoyable film, not at all dated, not for everyone by any means, but worth looking into if you're interested in seeing something different.
I enjoyed entering into the globe of this film. Watching a film within a film is everytime interesting to me. And especially when the setting is India. That the characters were shallow and yet fascinating was in itself fascinating.Merchant/Ivory bring such a complex texture to all of their films. That's what, to me, makes them such nice filmmakers And their sensibility is very much show here also.I also liked getting some insight into the Indian culture. Ever since watching Monsoon Wedding, I seem to have an affection for it. The coloring of the folks is so beautiful. The dark hair and the dark eyes. And the clothes, especially the pretty saris the girls wear. I know it is the guru/savants that draw many to the culture but I seem to search it very simple to control my enthusiasm for them. The aesthetic beauty, however, is very compelling. And the spirit of the people.This movie is worth seeing, imo. Merely to set forth the plot would not really do it justice. It's one of those instances where the entire is greater than the sum of its parts.
This film is about the love affair of an western writer and an Indian movie star. I liked it very much and the mission I found most interesting is the western craving for eastern spirituality exemplified by the visit and internship of the heroine in an Indian guru. The film presents the guru in a savage light, as a self-promoting socialite proud of his western connections. Whether it is questionable that all the exponents of eastern spirituality as such cranks the one in the film is, thus a satirist perspective is adopted. The characters are shallow and self-absorbed and their lives hollow, the film pointing to the emptiness of stardom.The end is tragic and the world-view exposed is close to that of Ecclesiastes. Despite that I found the couple of the protagonists very engaging since as Oscar Wilde told only shallow folks refuse to judge by appearances.
