Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts
First screened in September 2017
Director: Mouly Surya. Cast: Marsha Timothy, Dea Panendra, Egy Fedly, Yoga Pratama, Haydar Salishz. Screenplay: Mouly Surya, Rama Adi, and Garin Nugroho.

Twitter Capsule: Neither as fun nor as nervy as the setup allows. Has ideas but hews mostly to imitative surface.

VOR:   Takes some guts to make and release in Indonesia, and does some interesting things with its genre update, though I'd have been glad to see even more.
