The movie released in 2007. The storyline is actually criticize United Nation, The Hague, and many international organization because they failed to take actual action to punish the war criminals. The storyline is little bit cheap. A typical of Hollywood movie with a love story inside the drama and happy ending. But the critics is the best selling point. The movie exactly shoot on the heart of those international organization that have the responsibility to punish the war criminals. After years, Ratko Mladic, one of the war criminal, arrested. It is just like how the film ended.

This is antoher phsyco movie. The dialogue is sharp and smart. The movie remind me of Pulp Fiction. There are a lot of popular culture symbol on the movie. Meanwhile, the storyline is very engaged. You have to watch the movie.
A ticking-time-bomb insomniac and a slippery soap salesman channel primal male aggression into a shocking new form of therapy. Their concept catches on, with underground "fight clubs" forming in every town, until an eccentric gets in the way and ignites an out-of-control spiral toward oblivion.
This is a good movie about father and son relation. The storyline is not like a mainstream movie produced by Hollywood that always show us capitalistic story. In this movie, such cheap characteristic is confiscated.

I don’t know how to describe this movie. Great, maybe then only appropriate word to describe the movie. The movie tell us that we’ll face irreversible moment that will change our life forever. Oprah may called it “aha moment”. Even, if you have a plan for your life, God will only laugh on it. The drama is meaningful. At least force the audiences to think and contemplate about their own life. Meanwhile, the chain events are smoothly connected. It just make the movie has a strong engagement.
I always fascinated by non-mainstream movie. I mean, by movies that are not produced by Hollywood movie makers. I always find a new perspective and inspiration from such a non-mainstream movies. Just try to watch French or Middle East movies, they have a different selling point, different perspectives and of course different inspiration. And Captain Abu Raed just confirmed my assumption. I find a different perspective and inspiration on this film. The star also confirmed my position.
A sweet-tempered tale about the power of fantasy and storytelling becomes a starker parable about human connection and personal sacrifice.
I think this is a little bit good movie. The story just little bit same with Scorsese’s Shutter Island, a psychological horror movie. But, Scorsese’s still better. The collaboration between Scorsese and Di Caprio seems unbeatable. The most important thing, Amber Heard is so sexy on this film.
In the wake of Martin Scorsese’s recent movie about almost exactly the same thing, it’s tempting to rename this one Sh*tter Island.
But its different on John Cameron Mitchell’s Rabit Hole. His film is really a good and worth to watch. I think this is because not only MItchells tallent, but also Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart’s hard work to play their best act in this film.

this is a kind of 2.0 marketing when everybody said on various social media that Sang Pencerah is awesome and inspiring. many public figure shared their praise regarding the movie that also had a side effect to encourage the crowd to watch the movie. regarding such 2.0 marketing strategy, the film was succeeded.
on the storyline, this is the major weakness of a biopic movie. the actor and director are always try to painstakingly illustrate the figure. in other hand, biopic movie always try to depict a whole complex life of a person in a short duration movie. the implication is that the film occasionally miss the detail that could be more inspiring.
i deeply concerned with the scene of how Ahmad Dahlan try to reform the Qibla direction that was adopted by general Moslem in Yogyakarta. that was awesome how the young Ahmad Dahlan tried to make a dialogue with the elder priests in Kauman. more exploration of this scene, the movie may be more inspiring.
