After last week’s mammoth near-90 minutes edition of the only film podcast in Bahasa Malaysia that probably drove you into submission (the podcast, that is. Not the language. Although that depends too, we suppose…), we’re back with…more of the same! Not enough with collecting the metaphorical air miles on their metaphorical travels, they take a look at the New Wave films from America and Italy, before finally landing back home, all exhausted, in Malaysia. “Phew,” says the only film podcast in the world (maybe not) to not really use their gym membership!
- Here’s the New Hollywood with people like Martin Scorsese and Terence Malick, who made ‘Mean Streets’ and ‘Days of Heaven’ respectively
- Italian Neorealism, meanwhile, has Vittorio De Sica and Federico Fellini
- If you can, please make some time for ‘Bicycle Thieves’ and ‘Umberto D’
- Malaysian New Wave holds their own with Amir Muhammad, James Lee (who now makes films like these) and Tan Chui Mui, whose ‘A Tree in Tanjung Malim’ is…seminal
- The Busan International Film Festival hosted the Three Colors of Malaysia panel in 2007, and here’s a report of it written by Wong Tuck Cheong
- We were there, but a year late though
