    there's a complex intersection between violence, sex, love, masculinity, money, and indonesia's sociopolitical landscape that the film captures so so well. edwin never misses! also, ladya cheryl can step on my chest anytime and i'd be happy to do it again and again. man, i'm a proud indonesian 🤙
