Interviewing the inspiring and iconic Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah, wife of former Prime Minister Dr. Mahathir
Last Monday, for the documentary that I am currently working on, I had the honour of interviewing Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah at her office. She had been a role model for Malaysian women (and men) for more than six decades, and played an important role on developin...

Peter Jackson's KING KONG
Saw King Kong yesterday on Christmas. I agree with Roger Ebert's review (and most other US critics'). This film is pretty great. I had my doubts with the film when I first saw the trailer (the one that came with 'War of the Worlds'). It looked nothing more ...

Su-Ki-Da (好きだ、)
Su-ki-da, directed by Hiroshi Ishikawa, is a slow-paced arthouse romance that I watched with Vivienne and Ayumi on the night of Justin's birthday party, we were reduced to groaning in agony as the film became too slow and, as said by Variety's review , self...

Short films from the VERY BAD FILM SCHOOL: James Lee Challenge
No, I'm not dissing a film school. The Very Bad Film School is a one weekend film challenge started earlier this year by Tan Chui Mui with the strong belief that the only way to learn how to make films is... by making films. (which I don't disagree) There a...

Zhang Yimou's RIDING ALONE FOR THOUSAND OF MILES 千里走单骑
After making two consecutive big-budget martial arts flicks, the wonderful 'Hero' and the crappy 'House of Thousand Daggers', Zhang Yimou returns to making a simplistic and low-budget drama starring veteran Japanese actor, Takakura Ken . I saw this film in ...

You, Me and Dupree
After the My Super Ex-Girlfriend horror, I walked into another hall, hoping that I wouldn't have the bad luck of seeing two bad films in a row. Unconsciously, I was also doing a Wilson brothers double bill (MY SUPER EX-GF had Luke Wilson, this one stars Owe...

Rest in peace, Fat Yau 肥耀, 一路好走
昨晚突然间收到罗胜耀离去的消息感得非常心酸。 几天前知道他得了骨痛热症进了院。 没想到昨晚就走了。 大家都称为“肥耀”的他, 有份参与《榴梿忘返》, 饰演伟伦这个革命分子角色。 其实, 他也为剧组介绍了许多特约演员, 天天负责载送大家去现场。 没有他, 就没有《榴梿忘返》了。 我第一次认识他, 是2013年的11月份, 那时候我们正拍摄胡明进执导的《偷·情》。 他饰演一位杀人不眨眼的缅甸出家人。 虽然只是短短一场戏, 身为制片的我觉得他非常投入自己的角色, 很肯定是超爱演戏的人。 所以就邀请他参与自己执导的处...
