Pather Panchali

LetterboxD review link

“Rotting away in one place year after year, does no one any good. It makes a person petty and mean.”

Here are a few facts about this film that blow my mind when I consider them.

An incredible film. I’m already a Rabindranath Tagore fanboy. But the fact that he influenced people like Satyajit Ray and Amartya Sen, and created a place like Santiniketan, just puts him over the top as one of the most important, and under-rated, intellectuals in modern history.
