Kingsley,

I'm not sure that you're joking, so I'll answer:

It's unambiguous to those who know that Ben Kingsley was in Gandhi and 
Sexy Beast. It's probably close to unambiguous to those who know that Ben 
Kingsley is an actor, and Gandhi and Sexy Beast are movies. To everyone 
else, it's probably ambiguous, which is my point.

Joel.
