Miss Lovely

Here's a new kind of Indian movie, neither Bollywood nor Bengali art film. Set in the netherworld of Mumbai/Bombay's exploitation-movie industry during the 1980s, the film focuses on two brothers who secretly produce and peddle sleazy sex-horror flicks. Enter Pinky—an alluring and mysterious young ingenue who just may be their ticket out of the grindhouse ghetto. Part noir melodrama, part authentic period piece, this visually stunning work from a director steeped in American avant-garde cinema evokes Fassbinder, Scorsese, Oshima, Dario Argento, and others. "A shock to the system—An Indian film like I’ve never seen...Mesmerizing." -Jonathan Romney, Sight & Sound.

113 min. Cleveland theatrical premiere. Subtitles. Blue Ray.
