If you like Sabu, you know what this is like, if you've never seen Sabu this is a good jumping in point...
13 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not an unaccessible movie. Sabu's films tend to come off as flashy and stylistic, and I mean, they are, they are unique to himself, so Sabu is very much a required taste. running at about 80 minutes this isn't his best, but it is still a solid effort.

Sabu films tend to start off with one character/ storyline, and eventually filter in others, you won't find much character development, but just enough to get interested and find each person discernible.

The humor itself is spot on, as is the editing and cinematography. There really isn't much to say without spoiling the movie, or even spoiling of discovering the joy of Sabu's works in general. He's a solid director, and for what it is, he just created a minor masterpiece.
