love in times square is out. And Dave Kehr of the NYTimes has a review out there, that strangely sidelines the film's flaws and recommends it: "those looking for a vacation from the irony and the cruelty that have invaded so much of American popular culture, this scruffy little Indian film is a delightful getaway". I'm getting sick of this American phenomenon of "discovering" foreign cultural representatives based on mostly sub-standard fare heavily marketed by capitalist studios (something that Jonathan Rosenbaum condemns artfully in his book Movie Wars, currently on my reading list). {link courtesy: Chris}
