Outstanding
1 November 2018 | by lukechongSee all my reviews

The idea is to make an omnibus collection of short films directed by the nation's more acclaimed filmmakers, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Singapore's independence. If the idea sounds politically correct, allay your fears. This anthology of short films does not disappoint.

Each of the directors has before or since made a feature. (K. Rajagopal is the last, with 2017's "A Yellow Bird".) Each director wrote his film and directed it with a fairly high production value. All are under 25 minutes in length and each makes a distinct impression. A couple even outshine the features the director have made before--Jack Neo and Kelvin Tong's entries are maybe even better than their features. French actress Juliette Binoche even makes a cameo in Eric Khoo's!

It is hard to find an omnibus film that engages throughout, but this does the job pretty well.
