SUSUK....


Pssstttt.... i have a secret to tell....... NO!!!.... *im not wearing susuk or do i intend to have one*... he...he..... The truth is, im NOT an ardent fan of horror/scary movies..... let alone Malay horror flicks........
I came to know bout this movie from the trailer.. you know, trialer of upcoming movies shown before the actual movies start.. but i didnt have any intention of watching it whatsoever.... I thought that the movie will be just like any other Malay horror genre... trying to scare the viewer but really doesnt made any sense.....
So, one day, i was reading blogs here and i came across Yasmin Ahmad's blog an internationally acclaimed director.. of which im and ardent fan of.. chewah.. *mengaku fan lah konon*... he..he.. and she did this review .. well... not a review actually.. more of a comment bout the movie Susuk.... She highly recommended to watch the movie.... and give praises on the technicalities and the storyline of which i will not reveal anyway as its not my intention for writing a movie review........
Anyway, yesterday, i was on medical leave due to some light fever and colds..... I was bored at home doin nuthing... so, i called my friend Rupaul asking him whether he was free to join me watching movie.. after some arrangements, we agreed to watch movies at Midvalley.. i wanted to have a movie marathon since it was quite sumtime since i last watch any movies..... So, we made plans to watch Wall-E... which turns out to be a good movie to watch with your loved ones.. and ...SUSUK.. mainly because of Yasmin's review....
I found that the movie stand true to Yasmin's every single comments.... i didnt have high expectation at first.. during the first few minutes of the movie, i knew that its really a good movie to watch.... Im not gonna give away the storyline.. but in a gist, the movie is about people's quest to find beauty and fame and the extend that people will go to find it be it the right way or the wrong way....... I think that the premise of the stroy is somewhat based on human's morality but sumhow, it does not dictates to the viewer whats right or wrong.. but merely potraying the result of those infatuation of being beautiful and famous.....
Somehow, the essence of the story as captured beautifully by having great camera works... seamless shot of scenes from one to another and great acting by the actors.... I think that its good that the director does not duelve too much on the morality of the subject matter.. but by showing the consequences of these endless infatuation instead..... with a touch of humour...
I found that this movie is refreshing.... it's not the typical horror flick that is full of the scare factor.. it not ur run on the mill type of scary movies which tries to scare their audiences any chance that they can.....
It is a manifestation of the darker side of human... what we can and will do to achieve greatness......
