First film I've seen for 2000 Singapore International Film Festival. A short film at only 65 minutes but effectively delivered. It does not comment, preach nor interpret any of the protagonist's actions. All that is left to the audience as the character goes through the ascension and spiraling descent of a thug at odds with society, his partner in crime & inevitably, the underworld itself. One can't help but sympathise with him at certain points but one cannot shake the doubtful feeling that he's not that hapless but actually cold blooded and ruthless too. Interesting film - definitely fodder for thought.
