Art-house with a capital A
23 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

There seems a streak of distasteful misanthropy in "Mee Pok Man", for all the accolades heaped upon this release. This is not an easy film to sit through. Kudos to Eric Khoo for wringing acting chops from the two leads - Michelle Goh and Joe Ng - who basically can't act. By making the mee pok seller dimwitted and Bunny a hooker Khoo manages to wring maximal emotions from them, yet his final resolution evokes more repugnance than empathy. Most people who went through 105 minutes would feel disgust with Joe Ng's character - who seemed not just intellectually challenged but also mentally twisted. One hopes for more dignity in the portrayal of the intellectually disabled. You wonder too if all the nudity in the movie is gratuitous, like what another reviewer has said. This is Art-house with a capital A, but don't say Khoo didn't warn you, with all those nudity shots as the film opens.
