A light comedic piece from Pang Ho-cheung, director of devilishly good previous NZFF titles like Dream Home, Vulgaria, in true exploitation cinema mode, over-promises in both its title and programme synopsis. Instead of the comedically grimy, and twisted John Watersesque film the title Vulgaria invokes, we are delivered a cheeky satirical strip down of the sometimes ideal compromising process of getting film projects funded. Chapman To puts in a good turn as Hong Kong film producer and ethical chameleon To Wai-cheung who guests in an interview for a film studies class and spins a tale of moral abandon in getting a film project financed by gang boss Brother Tyrannosaurus (Ronald Cheng) made. Pang's film certainly delivers its share of laughs but mostly just feels a bit silly and slight. It is (now) perhaps unsurprising to have read that the film was made in only 12 days.
