I recently got to see Louis Malle's 1968 documentary on Calcutta. This film is a side product of his documentary phantom india, a timeless masterpiece about our human species caught in an endless cycle of life and death. Watching it brought all those memories back, when I was traveling in India in the mid-eighties, always having this weird sensation as if death would grab my shoulders everywhere I went in a country of most extreme contrasts.
