Dept. of Jibbers, Jabbers, and Yackety-Yaks

Today, on the Goggler Podcast, Bahir and Uma watch and review the Malay “historical” action epic that’s currently making waves in Malaysian cinemas – Mat Kilau: Kebangkitan Pahlawan. Why has it raked in so much money? What is its appeal? Is it inherently racist or just inadvertently so? What does it mean in our current political climate? Were any bhai’s actually harmed in the making of this movie? All of these questions and more are addressed in this episode.

Mat Kilau: Kebangkitan Pahlawan is now showing in Malaysian cinemas.

Mat Kilau: Kebangkitan Pahlawan is inspired by the epic Malaysian historical figure Mat Kilau who had fought against the British colonists in Pahang before independence. The movie was directed by Syamsul Yusof and stars Adi Putra, Beto Kusyairy, Fattah Amin, Johan As’ari, Ali Karimie, Khir Rahman, Yayan Ruhian, Rahim Razali, Namron, A. Galak, Wan Hanafi Su, and Jalaluddin Hassan.
