Was able to catch these two titles today:

Mamang (Denise O'Hara) *** - Set sometime in the '70s or '80s, it's about the relationship between an elderly woman whose past traumas haunt her present and her adult gay son. The lead is played by Celeste Legaspi who's a pretty famous singer-actress I remember growing up. She's making a comeback in this fantastic lead role. The director is Denise O'Hara whose sister is the late Janice O'Hara who directed Sundalong Kanin and whose uncle is the late Mario O'Hara who directed Tatlong Taong Walang Diyos and it seems like those three formed a sort of unofficial trilogy with this film whose twists and turns I won't spoil here. Though it's far from perfect, it's still a touching and heartfelt and I feel like it's very personal too.

Distance (Percy Intalan) ***1/2 - A woman estranged from her family returns after living abroad for five years to reconnect with her children and her husband. This film absolutely blew me away. Part of that is really not knowing anything and just allowing the events to unfold which gets you to feel differently about every character. It is a bit of a spoiler to say that this is actually an LGBTQ film but it has to be mentioned that this is one of best LGBTQ films of its kind. It's a restrained, beautifully humanistic piece of cinema with stellar performances all around. Young director Percy Intalan made his best work so far with this and is my favorite Filipino film this year.

Should also watch Liway and ML. Slept through Dapithapon and some parts of Kuya Wes but I got the gist of the story. Panalo ang themes on Martial Law this year.  Shorts i like Sa Saiyang Isla
