I Crush the Body Electric: Action movies and the Surrealistic Assault

Posted: January 29, 2011 in Uncategorized

Enthiran (Tamil: எந்திரன், Entiraṉ ) is a 2010 Tamil science fiction film co-written and directed by S. Shankar and is the most expensive Indian movie made to date. Upon release it became the highest-grossing Tamil film and the highest-grossing Indian film of all time as well.  Probably the oddest action scene ever conceived (and making its way on the celluloid), with the most improbably contorting robot entity, this climatic ending is an unabashed slamdance at the core of a pulverizing surrealism.
