The Gods Must Be Crazy

I happened to watch the yesteryear classic " The Gods Must Be Crazy" yesterday. It was an absolutely funny, earthy and timeless movie whose message remains relevant even today.

The movie revolves around three distinct stories - A Kalahari bushman who finds a coke bottle and how it changes his life, A goofy scientist who gets nervous in front of women and an african civil war rebel. The director weaves these stories deftly together with dollops of humor and earthiness. The greatest success of the movie in my opinion is it makes you wonder about the relevance of " Civilized world" without ever being preachy.

Grab a DVD if you can.
