BUMBUNG AKU LANTAI ORANG REVIEW
The fifth film (BALO) was by far the most hilarious of all, portraying the life of an individual in a complex of cheap flats. This movie basically portrayed every single stereotype I could think of.
From the gossiping mak ciks, to the guy who thinks he's all high and mighty by asking criminals to make amends by writing an essay and returning his cash. However, it showed just how incredibly ridiculous the truth about Malaysians can be portrayed.
Seeing a person being helpful is somehow misconstrued as him having an affair.
How justice is dealt through mob mentality since the police have an SOP to determine the priority of investigating a case.
And even how the elevators in such apartments never seem to be working. Figures..
All in all I enjoyed this one the most for its freshness. Though after watching "Punggok Rindukan Bulan", I definitely wanted a less artsy portrayal of the life in a rundown flat complex.
