You may have missed this last week, but Pakistan has lifted a musty five-decade ban on India's movies being shown there legally. What this will do to the country's bootleg Bollywood DVD industry is unknown. It's also unclear whether this means the world has future Pakistan-India co-productions to look forward to. But I say give it a go, you crazy kids. If the world needs a 4-hour anti-imperialist cricket musical, aren't you two just the countries to make it happen?
(And yes, for now, this a post-Super Bowl-free zone.)
