|AMIR MUHAMMAD RETROSPECTIVE|
This is one Muhammad’s favourite films. “Oh yes, the bonus short 18MP is quite special to me. It is one of Jins Shamsuddin's finest performances! His impersonation of a boot-licking politician is right up there with his Jefri Zain - and I am glad I was there to see it”. After the Ministry of Home Affairs in Malaysia banned The Last Communist, to justify themselves, politicians and government functionaries turned into film critics. The press interviewed them as they left the screening. Muhammad reveals through his peculiar humour the pathetic reasons they had to censor the film. “If the situation didn’t exist, a mockumentary maker would have needed to invent it. Makes me consider making videos only for Youtube from now on.”
