i had a chat with this lady who spoke not very fondly of malay movies - yes malay not malaysian movies. i had to admit that malay movies have failed to appeal to the learned crowd such as this particular lady who works in an investment bank. yes. an investment banker watching a malay movie in the cinema? unlikely.
as she was bla-bla-ing away, i managed to squeeze in a kanye-style question in between pauses - "imma gonna let you finished - but what was the last movie you watched?" she stared at me for a good quarter of a minute and just as the tune of silence started to get compelling, "sembilu! or something like that - the yusof haslam one!"
no doubt, i too diss some of the movies out there but, i guess in order to do so you need to be a paying customer. if you don't pay you shut up its a very simple policy. otherwise - who gives a fuck?
who gives a fuck. which is pretty much the state of the industry in malaysia. which is very sad. the chat ended when she started talking about her planned holidays in the carribean. which i bet is much more interesting than malay movies or me.
