Review on 4th Singapore Short Cuts

A Nutshell Review has a review of the 4th Singapore Short Cuts Preview held last week. Here’s a bit on Zo Gang:

“…Jacen Tan, who has garnered a cult following on the Internet with his earlier two movies Tak Giu and Zo Peng, has his latest short Zo Gang (Go Work) showcased here, so online fans, it’s time to journey outdoors to the Museum to catch this on the big screen – Zo Gang shows plenty of signs of a short filmmaker becoming comfortable with his craft, and is an entertaining one at that, dedicated to local filmmakers and musicians.”

Oh, and those who are coming down on 11 Aug, be reminded that you have to be over 21. That day is rated R21 cos there’s a film by Sun Koh which has some sexy scenes.
