    Terrorizers

    ★★★★

    Terrorizers is a low key film in its approach. Yang never lets it turn into a loud film, even though it has intense emotions and heavy themes in it. It always moves in a subdued way creating mood with its visuals and editing.
    It brilliantly explores the emptiness and void created in the lives of these people by mundanity and repetitiveness of this urban materialistic world. These people have corrupted souls in one way or another and because of that…

    If I tell the truth
    They rush to beat me
    If I lie they trust me

    Hindus claim Ram as the One
    Muslims claim Rahim
    Then they kill each other
    Knowing not
    The essence

    With prayer beads and caps
    And brows of holy paint
    They lose themselves
    In sacred hymns but

    Many holy men I've seen
    Teacher of holy books
    Who acquire disciples
    Venerate graves
    But know not…
