The Buzz: This year's Attack the Block comes from Welsh filmmaker Gareth Evans, whose immersion in the Indonesia film scene yielded one of the most talked about movies from the film festival circuit in 2011. While the inevitable remake is in development, let's see if audiences buy into the hype and embrace the fighting form known as silat, which here is used to blur the line between the good guys and the bad. I love knowing the Evans wrote the script in English and had it translated for his actors, who in turn added native slang and made other dialogue adjustments.
