"Kala" is an elaborate film, despite the limitations of its production, that will satisfy both the fans of the noir, and the ones of the violent, supernatural horror/thrillers.

Audience Reviews for Dead Time: Kala

Honest cop Eros and narcoleptic journalist Janus independantly investigate a series of linked murders and soon find their lives intertwining in more ways than one. Imaginative mystery film by Joko Anwar, who appears to have single handedly improved the reputation of Indonesian film making a hundred fold in the last few years. It starts off a little complicated, but be patient and all the strands will start to make sense. Don't expect the usual plot twists though.. as one of the characters says,"If you read the history of other countries, everything's inventions, like electricity, the steam engine,but everything related to the history of this country is mystical ". An unexpected delight, hard to track down but worth the effort..
