Film Review – Paskal (2019) [Video]

Paskal

When you come across a movie with a $2-$3 million budget in the United States, you would expect it to be something that A24 spits out that has actors you’ve never seen before in an incredibly isolated location — I’m sure they have four of those movies in production as we speak. But in Malaysia, that kind of budget is considered a massive blockbuster, one that has an insane amount of pressure to perform. In fact, Paskal is a major step forward for the country in terms of film production as it is the most expensive movie in its history to date.

The following review will be spoiler free.
