Uncork It! – Malaysian Cinema In A Bottle
"The fact remains that these books are far and few in between to begin with, and Encik Hassan’s efforts shed much light on parts previously left in the dark for whatever reasons. I only wish that he had gone into greater detail in some parts, and then he had let himself off the leash a bit more, but like I said, this may no longer apply once the second edition comes out. Encik Hassan is a walking, talking encyclopedia of Malaysian cinema and its history, and I believe that this book is a very good reflection of that."
An excerpt from a review of 'Malaysian Cinema in a Bottle' I wrote for Thoughts on Films.
