History lessons amid popular culture

THE last local movie I reviewed in this column was Paskal (Calculating Paskal’s theorem, Oct 19, 2018). I called it a “good and important” movie showcasing the multi-ethnic composition of the navy.

I commended its impact on young Malaysians who “re-enact Paskal’s most riveting scenes, spreading a notion that a future career in the military is a possibility. I wrote for a young person, there is no greater inspiration than seeing people like yourself do amazing things... you too can bring pride to your family and your country through righteous service”.
