Personal life aside, he should be hailed as the director of Singapore. Our dramas are cheesy and not worth a watch, our programmes are always about food and nothing too new, but our movies are top-class and has broken into overseas market to eye-raising acclaim.
I love the I Not Stupid movie. It is a show that epitomized Singapore, as did many of his movies. But the one that I adored the most was Money No Enough II. The movie was touching and went beyond Jack Neo's usual reportorial. There was not a single dry eye in the audience when the scene for the blood transfusion came. Every character was played to such brilliancy that it made the whole weeping scene all the more tragic.
A great director, I am on the edge of my seat waiting for more.
