    The Ballads of Roy

    ★★½

    BALADA SI ROY (Fajar Nugros, 2023) delivers an eclectic tale of self-discovery & male ego with enticing 80s aesthetics plus HAI magazine machismo in a journey that feels too episodic & disjointed to get invested to. Would’ve been more enjoyable if it’s a series. (2.5/4)

  • Bayi Ajaib

    Bayi Ajaib

    ★★

    All that glitters in BAYI AJAIB remake (Rako Prijanto, 2023) is the face value — upgrading the look & the plot to stray away from the lo-fi & campy source material. Yet, the horror dept. isn’t half as creepy as the OG that has traumatized generations of viewers. (2/4)

    Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts

    ★★★★★

    It's a grace to Indonesian cinema and, more, to women's cinema.
    Mind your expectation.

    It's a story of Marlina the Murderer told in 4 acts.
    Not of Marlina, the murderer who commits 4 acts of killing.

    Sounds like Beastie Boys in cranky mood.
