Dao: Yeah...go ahead
Bank: A fag with piles walks into a Doctor's office. The Doctor asks him to wash his ass and then bend over. The Doctor pokes his finger into the guy's ass to find out what's wrong. The fag speaks with happy voice: "Take off your ring or I'll get hurt." The Doctor smiles and says: "It's close to my watch." Ha ha ha...the watch...isn't it funny?

Rather pointless...

"One Take Only" is not your average Oxide Pang movie. So is that good or bad? Well, I supposed that depends on what side of the table you are sitting. I must admit that I didn't really enjoy this movie all that much.

Despite the acting in the movie was really good, then the storyline was flat, hollow and rather pointless. Once the movie ended, I sat there on the couch thinking 'was that really it?'

The story is about Som, who is a young prostitute, who runs into Bank, who is a drug dealer. They have been living in the same building but never noticed each other. These two spark a friendship and end up in some heavy drug dealing, heading down a very wrong path...

Certain aspects of the movie were nice, as it does deal with some real life issues, but overall, then this movie was rather pointless and not that entertaining.

For an Oxide Pang movie, then "One Take Only" was below average, and there are far better movies from the same director available.
