Cast: Sunny Pang

Coherence and consistency are intentionally sacrificed, in exchange for a challenging and crazy ride. To appreciate this film, one has to be aware that it is a film made by 7 Singapore directors, with each knowing only what has happened in the last 1 minute of the previous segment. Because the 7 directors were intentionally chosen for their vastly diversified style and taste, it is not difficult to identify when each segment starts and stops. Finding a common theme is trickier, though not impossible. My vote goes to the 2nd segment. It simply sizzles in style and surrealism! The 4th segment perturbs with its perversion and plot, but amuses with its animated additions. The 5th segment sticks, not because of its satirical scorn at censorship, but rather its bloody and gory scenes. In sum, I would have preferred them to separate as shorts.

3 stars out of 5
