The movie "Sell Out"

The movie "Sell Out"

It's an award-winning Malaysian Comedy

But it's 1st premiered in other countries...y harrr???
Malaysian dunno appreciate arts???hehe...dunno...

"Money....y do u like rich ppl?"

*the pictures i copy from Jansen's blog....din even ask for permission...hehe...thanks ya....


Her name is Rafflesia Pong (Rafflesia=largest flower in the world, which reeks of animal carcass; Pong=stink). She's a bottom-ranking arts show host who's disillusioned with "those over-rated underachievers we call artists." He's Eric Tan (Eric=Eric, Tan=typical Chinese surname), a product designer who's just about to learn that it doesn't pay to be creative. They both work for FONY, a multinational conglomerate whose mission statement, copied from a Taiwanese company, is to be original.
In the face of such pressure, will Eric and Rafflesia retain their artistic integrityor will they finally sell out to fame, fortune or some other nasty thing that also starts with "F"?
