a mind-blown movies!
29 April 2012 | by (Indonesia) – See all my reviews

first, i know Joko Anwar. He makes such Noir movies like Kala (Time) or Pintu Terlarang (Forbidden door). and he did it again. Modus Anomali is just like a ride in a haunted house, such a thrill and black surrounding if you watch this movie.

i'm not gonna write long review or whatsoever. but really, if you love this kind of movies (thriller, horror, etc) you're gonna love this.

oh, and i forgot to mention the mid-end twist ending.. amazes me how Joko able and love to makes the audiences twist their brain and logic even when you walked out the cinema, you will still debating various aspects of this movie.

well done Mr Joko Anwar!!
