Wee Hunk's rating of the film Tropical Malady

I had this Malaysian friend who told me that when you journey through the jungles you will be safe as long as you don't believe in the spirits. Apparently he knew a girl who believed and was killed. There's a couple of problems. If you introduce the concept of monkey spirits, then it becomes something tangible whether it's real or not. Saying it makes you form an image or a concept in your head.
