Like a long hug that turns into something more but breaks like a heart when you separate. It's rare that a man is able to write and film women with such finesse, yet Saim Sadiq delivers. Perhaps it's because Joyland is ostensibly about a meek, house husband who lands a job as a backup dancer for the transgender performer Biba (played to perfection by stunning transgender actress Alina Khan). Very quickly, however, we realize the female roles are the only characters with any real depth, starting with the dancer's wife -- a strong and independent woman who must come to terms with the reality that food the gaps her husband's absences create. Whereas the men are all superficial, stereotypical place holders, the women of Joyland are the driving force of the film and a Pakistani society not aware enough to understand this obvious truth. (Joyland won the Jury Prize in the Un Certain Regard section of Cannes 2022 and is Pakistan's entry for best foreign film at the next Oscars.)

Saim has the artisitc finesse to pull off a grand celebration of cinema and it's evident throughout the movie but wha More

I guess people have forgotten the difference between the meanings of "promotion" and "depiction". For those who really don't know what these words mean: promotion means to encourage, to support something. And depiction means to show something, to make people aware of something by showing it to them. More

The title here is a theme park that features only tangentially in this enjoyable and potent tale of "Haider" (Ali Junejo). He lives with his extended family, unemployed, whilst his wife "Mumtaz" (Rasti Farooq) goes to work. He is a bit put upon: he must carry out many of the household chores - even More
