The Good, the Bad and the Head of a Criminal:

• A film by Mouly Surya featuring extraordinary beautiful cinematography by Yunus Pasolang as their Director of Photography.

• The movie is filled with visually arresting shots, each filled with meaningful messages brought out without the help of dialogues or explanation of any sort.

• A stylised arthouse thriller film that highlights important messages about the region's gender politics.

• Despite following a gory theme, it's not presented with meaningless blood-bathing violence but rather with clean execution of actions that display a lesson of the survival of the fittest.

• The film mixes Indonesian culture with a Western-genre but instead of a cowboy, we have a widow seeking for revenge.

Trivia:

• The idea of the movie came from a story told by Garin Nugroho to director Mouly Surya when they were watching a screening for a movie they were judging.
