KHAI: Oh, man... it's weird. I love the movie to this day, but it's weird watching it from 5 years later for a whole bunch of reasons. I look at how cheaply it's shot, especially considering how much consumer cameras and digital technology has evolved between now and then. It's weird looking at myself from 5 years ago. A lot's changed within those 5 years, a helluva lot. But at the same time, it's like watching a home movie (which a bunch of people would probably argue it's always looked like anyway). The flick is peppered with a whole bunch of my friends, some of them I don't see much anymore, some of them I've simply lost ties with. And it's also very nostalgic. The house that's in the movie no longer looks like that, it's completely renovated. And there's one scene where you can see this big, fluffy white cat in the background - that was Mommy Cat, my favorite cat who passed away last year from old age. It's things like that - little moments of nostalgia.
And sometimes I look at it and think to myself - "I got this cheap lookin' flick released in the cinemas. How lucky was I!?"
KHAI: 'Montage of my journey'? Wow. Interesting way of putting it. I guess it is. It's kinda like the filmmaking equivalent of that chart of the evolution of man from caveman to homo erectus. Except I haven't reached homo erectus stage yet as a filmmaker.
