B RATE ...DALAM BOTOL (2011) : MOVIE REVIEW

The movie good?:

Thanks to Raja Azmi, by letting Khir Rahman to direct the film in the first place.
Khir had done a tremendous job I might say, that the film turn out to be one of the best film produced this year.
…Dalam Botol explores human emotions, love, sad, pain, regret, and shame so effectively that it absorbed into me and I really feel sorry for the whole characters.
At the end of the day, the emotions stick with me that I wondered who the real man this Ruby was as this films was said to be based on real life story of one of Raja Azmi’s close friend. How the man get through his whole life to endure such great emotional pain and regret.
The film was so good and came as surprise to me because:
1. There’s is no Raja Azmi’s films yet to impress us so far. (Remember Cinta 100 Ela, anyone?). Not to mention a series of controversy surrounded the film.
2. Khir Rahman despite being active in directing theatre, he has’n been tested yet in the silver screen. …Dalam Botol was his debut as film director.
3. The film poster was so ugly, that it almost kill the urge, the appetite to see the film.

Tell me, is it worth watching?:

Kekuatan filem in terletak pada dua aspek yang boleh saya lihat iaitu:
1. Kebolehan Khir Rahman dalam mencetuskan rasa debar, gelisah dan mainan emosi di dalam babak-babak dalam filem ini. Ia sesuatu yang amat penting kerana penonton seharusnya dibawa untuk menyelami perasaan setiap watak didalam filem ini, bukan sahaja kepada watak utama tetapi juga kepada watak ibu (Normah Damahuri) dan ayah (Jalil Hamid) dan Dina (Diana Danielle) yang mengalami isu tersendiri. Khir Rahman sangat berjaya didalam aspek ini. Beberapa momen-momen penting digarap dengan baik sekali oleh Khir menunjukkan kekuatannya sebagai pengarah teater sebelum ini. Babak ketika ayah (Jalil Hamid) memarahi Ruby sememangnya meninggalkan kesan mendalam kepada penonton. Kesemua ini terletak pada kekuatan pengarahan dan kesungguhan para pelakon yang memegang tanggungjawab masing-masing.
2. Sesungguhnya tema homoseksual dan transseksual merupakan sesuatu yang taboo dalam masyarakat, namun filem ini menolak klise dan tanggapan tipikal masyarakat tentang golongan homoseksual ini yang selalu dianggap pesalah, pendosa dan bahan jenaka. Khir Rahman mengadun filem ini untuk berkongsi rasa tentang emosi dan secara jujur meletakan golongan homoseksual tiada bezanya dengan manusia normal didalam menanggung penderitaan zahir dan batin. Watak Dina dan ibunya yang ditinggalkan suami adalah simbolik bahawa kecelaruan emosi tidak berlaku dalam golongan homoseks semata-mata. Kecelaruan emosi, harapan dan rasa penderitaan tidak mengenal jantina.
3. Skor muzik yang indah dan membantu dalam menerbitkan mood-mood yang penuh beremosi.

…Dalam Botol’s strength lies in three aspects that I can see which is:
1. Khir Rahman abilities in creating a sense of beat, anxiety and raw emotions in the scenes in this movie. It is a very important point because the audience should be taken to explore the feelings of every character in this film, not just the main characters but also the mother (Normah Damahuri), father (Jalil Hamid) and Dina (Diana Danielle) who have their own issues. Khir Rahman is very successful in this aspect. Some key moments was brilliant and it only showed Khir’s strength as a theater director. The scene where the father (Jalil Hamid) and Ruby (Arja Lee) indeed left a deep impression on me. All of this lies in the strength and direction of the actors and the director who hold the seriousness of their responsibilities throughout the entire film.
2. Homosexual and transsexual theme indeed is something that is taboo in society, but the film clearly rejected and refuse the cliches and the stereotype perception about the gay community whose always considered as the offender, sinner and a joke. Khir Rahman carefully blend the film to share a sense of emotion and honestly put homosexuals as no difference to normal people in enduring emotional agony. Dina’s and her mother’s characters is a symbolic that emotional turmoil, hope and a sense of suffering knows no gender.
3.The music score was beautiful it really swing the mood.

What is it about actually?, ‘cos I don’t want ended up sleeping!!:

Namun, perhitungan Ruby itu telah salah kerana Ghaus tidak dapat menerimanya dalam keadaan fizikal seperti seorang wanita sekali gus menyingkir kan Ruby dari hidupnya.Keadaan bertambah sulit apabila hormon lelaki dalam tubuh Ruby kembali menyerlah dan dia ingin kembali menjadi seorang lelaki.
