I finally understand why Jodorowsky said cinema was the most complete of all arts. Because it can tell a criminally sexy story about strippers-turned-con artists, while Chopin is playing in the background.
I haven't read any of these Indonesian superhero comics so I can say my knowledge is very limited. If Joko Anwar was really going for the grim and gritty style, could he at least pick a story arc that was less laughable? I mean what's with this immoral serum? lol. That sounds so Silver-Agey. Even one of the characters thought it was silly. Exactly. I don't want to lower my standards or sugarcoat my opinion just because it's an Indonesian film, but I still want to support this film. Go watch it!
