Poignant and timely
7 March 2010 | by daveceoSee all my reviews

The Profile is a poignant and timely piece in this age when we are struggling as a country to reach a balance between our rights and our security.

On the one hand, some believe if you have done nothing wrong, you have nothing to hide or fear, so a loss of privacy and rights is a small price to pay for safety. While others believe that our civil liberties should not be sacrificed for any purpose because they are what define us a nation and differentiate us from our enemies.

This film explores the line between the two in a powerful way.

I don't want to reveal what happens, but I can say that Director Wang is showing his creativity and ability to convey a message in a powerful way by telling a story that we can relate to.

I look forward to more work from Wang and hope to see him explore full length features as well.
