Check In: Ship of Theseus (2012)
The big questions in life, handled with disarming simplicity & some style. No big names, but a ton of big ideas underpinned by realistic acting & situations, & beautiful cinematography. Physical space & cityscapes are deftly built in to the stories. A blind photographer negotiates a city, a Jain monk fades away fighting against animal testing of drugs & in the longest story, a kidney transplanted stock broker in Delhi realizes organs don’t come from storks. As he negotiates his way through an obstacle course of staircases, ladders & narrow passages to meet the poor victim of an organ harvesting ring he is reborn as he emerges to the other side.
DVD has two accomplished shorts by Gandhi.
