  • Chris's rating of the film Lost in Paradise

    as a gay vietnamese guy (who loves cats!), its really nice to see representation even though this is far from a masterpiece... i hope the viet cinema industry takes off (internationally) sooner or later so more, better movies like this can be made in the future; 7/10

  • eric gould's rating of the film Lost in Paradise

    It's not easy making friends in the big city, especially when strangers put on the charm and offer bait for a robbery. Young Khoi looks for a fresh start in Ho Chi Minh City leaving the countryside behind in Lost in Paradise. This melodramatic film by Ngoc Dang Vu boldly marks Vietnam's first gay feature film. Exploring themes of desire and authenticity, the film reveals that love is both cherished and bittersweet.
