Hotel Mumbai is quite an engrossing film. Enjoyable seems such an incorrect term considering the subject matter, but it truly was thoughtful and heart-racing.

The Q&A included the writer and director, and I hope tomorrow's will be much better than this evening's. A Bollywood actress in the audience hi-jacked the Q&A and seemed to relate everything about her :roll:

Thanks for the report, Marianne. Did you get to chat with Jason?
Are you looking forward to or dreading seeing the film again?

I"m on the fence about how I want to watch it. I'm not sure if I want to watch it in the theater, or at home when I comes out on whatever service will offer it. If I'm at home, I can pause it and get up and walk away from if it gets to be overwhelming. If I'm in the theater, I'm a captive (no pun intended) audience.

I definitely recommend seeing this movie. But if you're concerned about the violence, then yes, do what you feel is the best for you. I will admit that after coming out of both viewings, I didn't feel well ... but that is probably from sitting in the front row and the bursts of gunfire (the flashes) were too intense for me.

I was able to go up to Jason and speak to him ... about politics and that the Lost Girls said, "Hi!" :D
