    Midmoryland

    There's particular shot about 20 minutes into it of a funeral alter without any picture of the deceased that I thought perfectly capture the entire premise of the film.

    A few initial thoughts, it sucks, as expected. Also as expected, it's another one of those exorbitant vanity projects that's so self-obssesed with its leading man's public image that it's unable divorce the character of Ba Sang from Trấn Thành as a public figure. An entire ensemble cast is essentially reduced to the barest minimum to serve as narrative…
