This film, along with The Act of Killing, as part of an emerging picture of life in Indonesia. This movie is shot through with implicit horror and rage. "I Just Called to Say I Love You" is now a nightmare soundtrack.
Art house cinema that elevates sensitivity, family disharmony traumatic, acute racism, minorities hostage, put the '98 tragedy that so threatens the development of oneself, which can not be denied is a very scary reality. Interestingly this is the Indonesian cinema I most warmly welcome.
What is the link between an old dentist, Stevie Wonder, 3 gay males having anal sex in the dentist parlor and a Snooker game ?
Another gay flick, thanks Mubi. Unbearably boring.
Quel est le lien entre un vieux dentiste, Stevie Wonder, 3 gays en train de s'enfiler et un jeu de billard?
Ce nouveau film gay, merci Mubi . Ennuyeux jusqu'à l'os !
It's an audience participation film. They play the Stevie Wonder song a couple of times so you know the melody, and then the words are up there for you to sing along. It made me laugh every time it came on. The main flaw of the film is that it's hard to understand what's going on. I understood about 20% of it while I was watching. So I did my research. Now I understand the pig!
I would call this not-uninteresting hodgepodge belligerent and unforgiving if not for the fact that it routinely steps way back from its overstepping and almost seems to apologize. It apologizes for its ugliness (which it throws itself at willy-nilly, generally to losing effect) w/ its adorability (which it occasionally nails, not entirely to its credit). The thing feels fresh, but some of the ideas are very poor.
