Thoughts on Films – Episode 50: The One With The Last One

tof-icon1Ladies and gentlemen…all good things come to an end. We’re not sure whether this podcast particularly qualifies as a good thing, but unfortunately it is not the exception to the rule, meaning that this 50th episode will also be our last. As such, Fikri and Muz goes back into the past, taking a closer look at what may regard as the quintessential Malaysian film ‘Mekanik’. Though there is little that needs fixing, the boys get to work one last time all the same. Sorry may well be the hardest word, but we’d argue goodbye is equally tricky. Something a lot easier to say is thank you, dear listener, so sit back, relax, and enjoy the last ever episode of the world’s only film podcast in Bahasa Malaysia!
