APARAJITO (1956) 4 stars

The second chapter in the Apu trilogy is the most unconventional and arguably the most complex. The boy reaches adolescence and the questions truly begin. Traditionally second chapters don't offer many answers and this film is no exception. It's all about the journey. It may be my least favorite of the trilogy but it still remains a brilliant bit of filmmaking and storytelling.
