“Vexx” Director has new film coming out – Bongo Lights has trailer on youtube
In 2007’s Bridgetown Film Festival, this News-Blog reviewed “Vexx“ and was vexed at the filthy mouths of the cast, the film’s director stopped speaking to me for months, LOL! My concern was what kind of image do we send overseas as a tourism destination?
Well, thanks to some facebook pals, I learned although he’s back with “Life In The Ghetto” which has slicker production values, heavily minimised cursing but still quite a bit of violence even if obviously staged – but in fact this film is probably older than “Vexx“…
That was Part 1, now for me, the little boy was stupid! He should never have shown he was carrying so much money – it beats me how a child has so much loot outside of Christmas or birthday? Do we even want to know where the cash came from??
If you insist, here’s some more, especially if you love happy endings for no reason;-
Have to check with Bongo when he plans to release the full edition of this 3 year old flick – will it be theatre or DVD or both for that matter, it seems more cohesive than “Hush” and has as good or better cinematography. Just one thing though, the Bajan dialect is so thick, if Bongo was to send this abroad, he’d be best to add sub-titles like many Jamaican pictures do!
