Midnight's Children Wow, what a fascinating movie and then I find it's a screenplay of a Salmon Rushdie book. So complex. It weaves historical Pakistan/India conflict, class conflict, personal conflict, incredible symbolism, magic and beliefs. I'm so impressed. I am watching the end of it so I don't know how it ends, but what a master story teller. I may just have to read "The Satanic Verses" after all.
