Beautiful but pointless
7 January 2010 | by RyazorSee all my reviews

This movie has an epic cinematography (i must mention Riri Riza for this one) and some good tasted comedies, but i must say the plot of the movie is sucked, a flat complication makes this movie has no atmosphere at all, the moral of story is pointless, nothing new, yes i got nothing from this movie but a short laughs while watching in the theater, and the worst part is the ending, it's simply awful i can't believe it came so easily, just like the sequel "Sang Pemimpi", both of them have the same problems. But i really recommend them for Indonesian people which i think most of them would get a motivation from those movies because in fact they don't really get the point of the movie, yes they get the point wrong, but at least it's a good thing.

My point is, Indonesia is far left behind in the movie business, we need a really genius-styled director like Quentin Tarantino so people could see the difference between a terrific and a terrible movies. You don't need an advanced knowledge of cinematography or hi-budget producers to make a great movie, you just need to understand what "great movie" means, maybe the easiest way to understand it, is you go watch Pulp Fiction and you will see.
