    The Raid 2: Berandal

    An exquisite ballet of death, “Pencak silat”, adalah seni beladiri yang sangat dekat dengan kebudayaan Indonesia khususnya di bagian barat Indonesia yang telah dikenal dan menyebar sejak jaman kerajaan tertua yang melegenda hingga keseluruh pelosok Indonesia. Di era 70 hingga awal 90an, selama bertahun-tahun film bergenre silat memiliki cara dan pendekatan yang identik dalam hal pengembangan cerita dan pengemasannya. Kala itu film bergenre silat seperti Duel Naga Wulung, Pak Sakerah, Lelaki Sejati, saga Angling Dharma, Pendekar Bukit Tengkorak, Si Buta […]

So many […]

    Intouchables

    C’est magnifique de simplicité et d’honnêteté - Begins with a black Maserati Quattroporte GTS roaring his ferocious engine sound in the city of Paris at night. Inside the car, the driver bet that he could lose the police chase behind them. It’s truly unexpectedly dashing opening scene with great lighting, great editing, and a beautiful score.  If I must say it is one of the coolest opening scene I’ve ever saw in film, and yeah I’m a Petrol-head and a big fan of Earth, Wind and […]
