of the three full length films I watched in this year's cinemalaya, ML is a strong contender for the top prize. my heart was pounding hard all throughout the movie! I was mentally tortured and the audience that night would no doubt echo the same state of mind. intense and gripping. I cursed eddie garcia for his superb acting.
we watched the gala screening and as per the director, after 20 years in the industry, finally he was able to direct a full length movie.
and what a masterpiece you created, direk. kudos.

cinemalaya is an annual reunion with friends. cinemalaya is also one reason why I am excited for this time of the year. for me, cinemalaya kicks off the artsy season and ccp becomes home till year end.
I only consider two seasons every year- 1st half is summer for wonderful travel stories. 2nd half is for the arts- cinemalaya, musicals and theatre performances.
