A powerful drama movie which is presented with dark and heavy theme.
27 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

I heard about this movie few years ago, and people described it as "Malaysia first gay movie". And to be honest, there's more to this movie than that.

First thing i notice is the style, a dark and heavy style, which seems to be very effective because it's like placing the audience's mind inside the head of the main character(Ruby). This really help the movie a lot in term of story telling because it's suit well for the main character(Ruby), which his/her life isn't "happy and bright". I praised the director(Khir Rahman) for the ability to pull this off.

Next thing is the screenplay, what more can i say, it kept not only your eyes to the screen, but also your ears to the words. And the acting is great as well, Arja Lee is great in this movie, not only him, but kudos to the rest of the cast as well. I'm not a Muslim, but i understand the issues that Ruby face with his religion,Islam. And this is the another aspect that are well done in this movie, the theme of gay/religion.

Overall, I think "..Dalam Botol" is a good movie, but not for everyone, because of the heavy theme. Nothing bad i can say about this movie, except for some minor character that I think was undeveloped. Apart from that this movie is good and worth watching.
