900 everyone! I probably shouldn't get excited until the 902 mark, when I have less than 100 reviews left to write. But really, I would rather talk about my progress than this film, as this is one of the worst movies I have seen recently.
After the death of his father, a young man is forced to take over his job as a cyclo driver. The rest of his family is forced to work as well, with the older sister turning to prostitution. When the man's cyclo is stolen by a gang, he joins a criminal organization to make ends meet. I have no idea if the main character had a name. On the IMDb page, the character's name is Cyclo. That can't be right...
The Wikipedia page notes that the film is considered hard to understand. It definitely is, although I am surprised the page was so honest about it. The movie was extremely pretentious. The filmmakers seemed more intent on being artsy than actually telling a coherent story. And why was everything so blue toned? And why did everyone have to die so slowly?
But still, 900!
Features a song by Radiohead. Give me a break, there isn't any good trivia for this one.
