Devised Marvel Movies in The City

Kam Raslan | Faiq Syazwan | Sim Wie Boon

Devised Marvel Movies in The City

In this episode of A Bit of Culture, Kam’s studio session is graced by dynamic duo Sim Wie Boon and Faiq Syazwan on an intense conversation about gentrified city centres, devised theatre and the debate on Marvel movies—are they really that bad? Kam has observed that downtown KL has been “hollowed out”: with KLites choosing to move out of the city centre, he wonders about the fate of our metropolis’s city life. Then, Faiq gives us an insight into devised theatre, the different opinions on its collaborative nature and how live performances are generally meant to be a gamble. Lastly, Sim sets the record straight with the criticism of Marvel movies not “being real art” in relation to the different circumstances that make a successful box office film.
