    Rather than draw on documentary's inherent gravitas, this one clowns around with hammy, unfunny interlocutors. The subject may humour, but only blackly: why a man went amok in Kuala Lumpur in 1997, how it might correlate with racial & political divisions in Malaysia's melting pot. The Bakhtinian treatment, as a result, feels less like a thumbing of the nose at authority than a repellent theatricality.
