NYAFF 2012 Opening Night Screening: VULGARIA

The 2012 New York Asian Film Festival opened with a bang on Friday night with Pang Ho-Cheung's "astonishingly filthy" film industry send-up, VULGARIA.

And when we say "bang," we're not talking explosions, here. There wasn't enough money for pyrotechnics in the film's miniscule budget. So that really only leaves one place for the film-savvy pervert's mind to go. Fucking.

But we're not talking plain old fucking fucking. That would be boring. We're talking about the type of fucking you can't discuss with your grandma. The type of fucking we're not even going to talk about here, because it would constitute a major comedy spoiler. The type of fucking that had a sold out audience in hysterics.

The film starts with a simple question: What exactly does a film producer do? The short (and curly) answer is that a producer is like pubic hair; he helps to ease the friction. The long answer makes for the rest of our story, an outrageous series of events that  Pang Ho-Cheung promised, "all happened in real life."

VULGARIA screened Friday, June 29th at Lincoln Center. If you weren't there, you missed a great time at the movies. Be sure to keep an eye peeled for this one.
