Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts/Marlina Si Pembunuh Dalam Empat Babak
Directed by Mouly Surya
Indonesia/France/Malaysia/Thailand
95 Minutes, 2017

Marlina, a recently bereaved widow, is set upon by a group of men with rape on their minds—but she sure knows how to fight back. This is a proudly feminist work and a slam-bang revenge drama. The violence is harsh, the settings are beautiful and the narrative is utterly gripping. In her lead character, Surya has created a figure so striking, so proud, that it is a thrill to identify with her.
