(Mouly Surya, Indonesia 2018, 93 minutes, subtitles)
Subversive, gorgeously shot and truly unusual, this is a finely-executed mash-up of Tarantino, spaghetti Western and Indonesian folk tale complete with poison berries, machete-wielding women, rape, murder, revenge and headless ghosts. When seven bandits arrive at the widow Marlina’s house, they get rather more than they bargained for. On her escape to the coast Marlina falls in with the pregnant Novi and their destinies entwine. Set in the strange and wonderful landscape of the Indonesian hills to a marvellous musical backdrop, this has a seething fury, a bleak humour and an implacable logic that is mesmerising, shocking and curiously endearing.
