Can't go into too much detail about it right now (hoping to do an article on it), but I saw Siegfried Sanchez's Anak ni Brocka, and agree with much of what Jojo V and rse said--the fictional framework is less successful than the documentary segments (although I do love the barber-shop scene), you wish they spoke to Bembol, Gina and Philip instead of using them as actors, and the film is ultimately more a nostalgic journey into the many highlights of Brocka's life instead of a more critical levelheaded view--tho to his credit, Sanchez does his best, and it's really difficult to say anything controversial, especially with so many of the people involved still alive.

Maybe the most glaring omission (other than those already mentioned) is Mario O'Hara...but again, knowing how difficult it is to pin that guy down, I can't blame Sanchez for contenting himself with a brief flash of O'Hara in Maynila sa Mga Kuko ng Liwanag.

Beyond that, just for Sanchez's being able to pull together all these interviews, all those brief glimpses of Brocka's films, all the news footages of his appearances and death (and where did he find that taxi driver?!), it's an indispensible document--a must see for any newcomer at all interested in Philippine cinema.

Question: where was Spindle bar located? I remember it was in Banaue. Anyone know the exact location? My Manila geography's starting to get rusty...

Just read all the reviews for ANAK NI BROCKA, made me more interested to see the film. I'll get the vcd this week.

SPINDLE BAR? It must be somewhere in Tomas Morato Ave or Banaue, Noel. And where's Malu Barry now?

glad you liked the movie Noel... it's really difficult for a first time director to put together a film about Brocka. it may have some shortcomings but Anak Ni Brocka is an otherwise informative movie. 

Malu Barry is still around wasn't she in Jeffrey Jeturian's Minsan Pa?

Malu Barry has a nice and good voice, and Lino went nuts about her.

Spindle was a top 1970s bar along Morato corner Mother Ignacia.

It was famous for its circular floor space. Rico Puno was discovered there.

When it closed shop during the 1980s, it became ST PETER THE APOSTLE CHURCH.

Any updates for 2011?

I heard there was a movie about the Fil-American war last week.  Didn't get to see it at all.
