"The Warrior" has not a word, not a gesture, not an image out of place. Kapadia's film is very much a great poem: It is finished because nothing more can be taken away.
The theme is quest-for-redemption. Classic, simple, universal.
The characters are developed with a look, with a gesture. We understand perfectly, for example, the warrior's feelings towards the thief when, near the end of the film, he inches the thali towards himself teasingly.
Dialogue is (wisely, in my opinion) kept to a minimum. These are not chatty people, so why make them chat?
Visually, the movie is truly beautiful.
Most blockbusters today are very much like rides in an amusement park. The latest "Star Wars", "Lord of the Rings"... But if you are looking for an aesthetic experience, if (for example) you appreciate Satyajit Ray's films, you'll certainly like "The Warrior".
