The Screener Squad is going on yet another foreign film trip…emphasis on the trip. A runner-up for the Slamdance festival’s Grand Jury Prize for Best Narrative Feature and the only Indian film ever screened at the festival, Cat Sticks follows a group of Calcutta druggies as they seek to find that elusive high from a drug known as ‘Brown Sugar.’ However, the world is clamping down on their lifestyle and their desire to party will take them through some depths they may not be ready for. Or perhaps they don’t care where it takes them? This is hard to review, as it is very much a meandering film where we watch events unfold rather than a strict narrative in an effort to live in the world alongside these characters. Does this translate into a good movie for Justin and Lara? Listen to find out.
