I love Bunohan .
|This shipyard scene? Not CGI. Just brilliant film-making...|
As disappointed as I was when I learned that a rarity like Bunohan under-performed at the box-office (approximately RM720,000), I'm ecstatic to hear about the movie being considered for the Oscars, and it has resulted in a renewed interest in the movie locally (this is Malaysia, after all). Sure, it's too soon to say, and some might even try to downplay this achievement by saying that it's just being shortlisted, and it might not even make the cut.
Well, to those people... If you can't appreciate just how big a deal this is for the local film industry, you may go back to watching Adnan Sempit, Hantu Bonceng and Apa Celop Toqq while giving Ahmad Idham and David Teo a proverbialjob.
For the rest of y'all, here's something really cool; the full-length "Making of" featurette of Bunohan! If you have the time, this is worth every second.
