Any chance that they will restore those "pene" films during Marcos time? A shot in the dark maybe but really love to see restored versions of those movies.. It became part of the high school and early college in me.. Heck, I even memorized their names.

Saw Babae at Baril on Netflix. Maganda, at magaling ang pagkagawa. Marunong pala umarte si janine gutierrez. Di lang believable na saleslady. Baka may mas pinay looking na artista sana.

All the film I saw in 2002! Where did I find the time? Where did I find the energy? Where did I find all the 35 mm prints? Best of 2002

Thoughts on Gerardo de Leon's 1954 folk classic Pedro Penduko

Now available for streaming at a certain Facebook page. Also, the print should be available, so this can be screened once in a while.

‘Gensan Punch’ takes Kim Jiseok Award at Busan International Film Festival

Another Filipino film has been recognized internationally as the HBO Asia Original film “Gensan Punch” copped the Kim Jiseok Award at the prestigious 26th Busan International Film Festival on Friday.

The Filipino-Japanese film produced and directed by award-winning director Brillante Mendoza beat other nominated films from Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, China, India, Japan, Philippines, and Singapore for the highly-coveted award.

The Kim Jiseok Award is given to the most attractive film that reflects the contemporary standing of Asian cinema.

The movie, inspired by the true story of Naozumi Tsuchiyama, is about a Japanese man with a prosthetic leg who goes to the Philippines to train and pursue his dream of becoming a professional boxer.

It also opens the issue of discrimination towards the disabled, especially in competitive sports such as boxing.

In English, Japanese and Tagalog, “Gensan Punch” was filmed in both the Philippines and Japan. It stars a mix cast of Filipino and Japanese actors bannered by Shogen, Ronnie Lazaro, Kaho Minami, Beauty Gonzales, and Vince Rillon.

Arisaka (2020) - A tightly told revenge-survival thriller with some effective acting and good use of its location in the forests and hills of Bataan as lensed by cinematographer Mycko David. It's OK enough as a genre film, but somewhat simple and I think the narrative connections with the Bataan Death March were not explored quite solidly. Not my favorite Mikhail Red film, but not a wasted watch. Now streaming on Netflix.

History of Ha (Lav Diaz) *** - It's 1957. Then Philippine president Ramon Magsaysay was killed in a plane crash. A ventriloquist with his dummy returns to his hometown to marry his sweetheart. When he finds that she has married another to settle a debt, he goes on a journey with a nun, a prostitute and a teenage boy. This is the latest from writer-director Lav Diaz. He dropped it on YouTube for free on Valentine's Day. Since I have some free time at work, no date to speak of and I'm able to find four and a half hours to kill (actually on the short-ish side for Lav), might as well check it out. As usual, this is a long, heavy film. Although I do get the sense that Lav Diaz is starting to repeat himself by revisiting similar themes again and again, I believe he's justified in doing so to get his message across (especially since elections are fast approaching). Though I think this is far from his best work, it is still worth a look.

Kip Oebanda’s ‘Liway’ to stream for free on YouTube

The film, based on true events, tells the story of a political prisoner under dictator Ferdinand Marcos’ Martial Law

Kip Oebanda’s Liway will be available to stream on the filmmaker’s YouTube channel starting Friday, March 18.

The film was written and directed by Kip based on his own childhood. It tells the story of a young boy named Dakip who grew up in a prison camp with his mother, anti-Marcos dissident Cecilia Flores-Oebanda, also known as Commander Liway.

Liway first premiered in August 2018, as part of that year’s Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival, where it later went on to win the special jury award and the audience choice award in the full-length feature film category.

Kip said that the film will be available for viewing ad-free until April.

Katips (Vince Tanada) *** - This is a dramatic musical about a group of student activists during the Martial Law era. Released as counter-programming to a certain propaganda film disguised as historical drama, this isn't exactly a masterpiece either. It's way too long, there are weird directing and editing choices, some of the acting is mediocre, it delivers its message with the subtlety of a sledgehammer and the script could have used another pass or two. Too bad, because there's actually a great film there. However, when it's good, it's REALLY good. When it hits the right notes, it really hits. A lot of the songs are genuinely good. This is a film with a lot of good intentions and I agree with its message. It could have been a lot better but considering the current political situation here in the Philippines, we need more films like this now more than ever.

^  My son watched Katips yesterday in support of his political stance and he said that despite its good intentions, it was unfortunately a technically bad movie. Missed opportunity nga raw to really make something good and outstanding.
