    yet another review of filipinas from the inquirer ....

    Excerpt from Postscript to a film festival by Jo-Ann Maglipon

    "... it asked us to sit there and take in the relentless, unlrelieved, punishing political schooling... Filipinas told the panorama of the family, but ended up explaining nothing about the family and everything about the politics. every character represented an issue: every conflict, a maliase; every scene, a confrontation. Halfway through the film, I truly couldn't see the people for the cause. At the end of it, i could barely empathize. It was like being made to embrace all of humankind but none of the human beings because they werent there."

    Subject: Lito Zulueta's review

    Fantasia and carnival,
    not a film festival
    Posted: 10:34 PM (Manila Time) | Jan. 11, 2004
    By Lito B. Zulueta

    Idiotic movies

    THE 2003 Metro Manila Film Festival may have represented the strongest lineup of serious movies in recent years, but they are overwhelmed by the flagrant number of fantasy movies that makes the festival a carnival, not a showcase of the best of Philippine cinema.

    Of the nine entries, at least four belong to the fantasy-horror genre. Although serious filmmaking remains strongly represented, it is noticeable that the festival has more and more accommodated fantasy movies that cater to the general audience of parents and their children.
    It cannot be otherwise, since the Christmas season is generally a season for family bonding and togetherness. In short, it is a season for family entertainment.

    Of course, it is quite a stretch of the imagination to classify such inanities as "Fantastic Man," "Captain Barbell" and "Gagamboy" as family entertainment, much less as wholesome family entertainment. But even Filipino parents and their brood have a right to inanity. They have a right to escapism.

    Which brings us again to the issue of the film festival as inherently a protectionist, anti-consumer imposition. As I have said before, it is totally unfair of government to force Filipinos to spend their hard-earned 13th month pay and Christmas bonus on the inanities of Philippine cinema.

    At the least, they should have the freedom of choice to consider the other option-the glossy inanity of Hollywood cinema.

    Surely, there is a way for Filipino fantasy movies to be played alongside the glossiest Hollywood fares that are usually released for the Yuletide. If local cinema considers the issue a matter of survival, then some regulatory measures could be adopted, such as checking the number of foreign movies to be shown so as to give local movies a competitive breathing space.

    And since part of the proceeds of the festival goes to Mowelfund, the local industry's social security fund, tariffs can be imposed on foreign movies so that part of their income will go to the fund. The tariffs are justified, since they can be a condition for foreign movies to have a slot in the lucrative Christmas season.

    Meanwhile, the festival can be moved to another date that can best enhance its character as a showcase of serious cinema. As it is, Christmas is hardly the proper time to show serious (read: dramatic) movies because the holiday ambience goes against the earnest, resolute nature of artistic cinema.

    The dead-serious entries that try best to respond to the festival's dead-serious criteria have to compete with the holiday revelry and idiocy of the more commercial entries.

    And the tale of the tape shows they can hardly compete because year in and year out, the box office has always been dominated by the happily idiotic movies.

    Hardly the best

    Gil Portes's "Homecoming," a dead-serious movie about SARS, is dead in the box-office water against "Barbell" and "Fantastic Man." And it was made to suffer the ignominy of having to join the parade of floats as a concession to the holiday mood.

    SARS on a festival float? You must be kidding.
    The abolition of the festival will at least abolish the fiction that the festival is the showcase of the best that Philippine cinema has to offer. This year, despite the strong lineup, the three pictures chosen by the jurors as the best of the best could hardly be called that.

    The third best picture, "Filipinas," is a sprawling domestic drama that echoes "Tanging Yaman," which swept the 2000 festival awards. It could be seen in fact as the nationalist and non-sectarian version of Laurice Guillen's highly fervent spiritual drama.

    The trouble is that it has none of "Yaman's" rich characterization and seamless weaving of plot and subplots. It attempts an allegory of the contemporary Filipino nation in unabashed tabloid fashion so that the characters are basically stereotypes, representing certain motifs, in this case, of current events such as military corruption and adventurism, leftist activism, the government's uncritical pro-Americanism in the Iraq question, etc.

    When the matriarch (Armida Siguion Reyna) understandably gets a headache from all of these issues invading her formerly serene domain, she pours her grief at the parish priest (Tony Espejo), who proceeds to dump on her another headache-causing current event: he beckons to a handsome teenager in hip-hop regalia, introduces him as his son, and tells her he is soon to leave holy orders to face the music. (Thank God, the padre is not a pedophile!)

    The problem with the movie is quite obvious. If the movie were a newspaper, it would be one with several glaring banner headlines trying to bump one another out. If it were a dish, it would be sinigang, with ketchup thrown in.

    Without a doubt, however, "Filipinas" is an important movie. It tries to make sense of the dizzying swirl of contemporary events that continues to unhinge the national sensibility and expose the tenuous scaffolding of illusions that tie the national fabric together.

    It is a highly flawed film that decades from now will remain a strong social document of the way we were-or the way we have always been.

    It could be said that the second best picture, "Mano Po 2," is better than its predecessor, "Mano Po," which dominated last year's derby. But it is misleading to call it a sequel since it is an entirely different story altogether, with an entirely different set of characters.
    Sino-Pinoy saga

    Thus, one cannot say Eric Matti's movie is an improvement on the Joel Lamangan original, which, however wobbly, was politically significant since it was the first "Sinoy" (Sino-Pinoy) saga.

    At best, one can say "Mano Po 2" prolongs the franchise, considering the Sinoy skill at the business of franchising.

    If the first "Mano Po" broke the taboo on the Sinoy straight or crooked business dealings in the face of Filipino native harassment of the Chinese, the second "Mano Po" breaks the taboo on Chinese concubinage.

    The topic is at best intriguing. Matti mines fully the complexity of the issue in rich images, and he is stopped from his propensity to go overboard with his trademark fancy but disembodied camera work by Roy Iglesias and Lily Monteverde's chatty but engaging storytelling.

    What keep the viewer from getting lost in the fascination of it all are the big-name stars and the garish Oriental makeup and art direction.

    Just about every who's who in Philippine entertainment is here, with Susan Roces playing one of the wives and Kris Aquino, quite amusing again in her attempt at minimalist acting, playing a younger Roces in elaborate, overextended flashbacks.

    And all of them sport the trademark slinky eyes, an ophthalmologist's grand vision and defining moment.

    'Mano Po 3'
    Ah, but the first best picture, "Crying Ladies," should have been titled "Mano Po 3."

    It tells the story of three hard-up, quirky women who are recruited by a well-mannered and sensitive young Sinoy to cry on cue during the long wake of his father.

    The movie holds our attention because of the comical situations, the absorbing glimpse on quaint but colorful Chinese customs, and the sophisticated film language of the writer-director, Mark Meily, and his very able crew.

    But the movie is even more deeply flawed than the rest of the "best pictures." It may even be, I suspect, anti-Filipino.

    The heroines are comically, even sardonically, portrayed as "crying ladies": Stella (Sharon Cuneta) is an estafa ex-convict who cheats her way through jeepney rides, gambles the little money she has, attends singing auditions even if she does not have the vocal goods, and tries to bond with her son, who is on cruel loan from her estranged husband and before whom she casually justifies her deception and depredations.

    Doria (Hilda Koronel) is a stage mother and a frustrated actress whose 15 minutes of fame consisted of being trampled on screen by one of the ogres in Vilma Santos's campy 1970s movie, "Darna and the Giants"; and Chayong (Angel Aquino) is a Church volunteer who is a fixture in the confessional box for failing to resist the charms of a married guy.
    Cardboard-thin characters

    The three characters are cardboard-thin and deeply caricaturish. There is nothing liberating about them. They remain enmeshed in their illusions and banalities: Doria in her Norma Desmond illusions of screen immortality, Chayong in her spiritual naivete, and Stella in her sorry attempts at being a mother.

    Against these caricatures is presented the Sinoy character played by Eric Quizon: businesslike in his grief as he arranges every detail of the wake and funeral of his father, for whom he harbors ill feelings because of the deceased's philandering and abusive ways.
    But before the interment, he reconciles with the memory-and mistress-of his father. Even his mother, who in a previous scene lashed at the criers for laughing during the wake, becomes a benign, conciliatory figure, offering friendship to the mistress and apologizing to the criers for her impatience.

    The ending is quite droll and comical, but again, at the expense of the Filipino characters. After her son leaves her, Stella gets a call from the Sinoy, tipping her of an audition conducted by Japanese recruiters.

    Partly because of his endorsement, and partly because she has acquired acting skills after a week of lachrymal bravura, she passes the audition-not as a singer, but as a videoke actress. She becomes a videoke superstar, and her face graces just about every videoke screen. She becomes the face that launches a thousand videoke matches.

    She becomes, in short, the ultimate crying lady. When the videoke fanatic sees her face, it elicits the bawls, wails, sobs and blubbers of a trivial race that cannot get out of its frivolity, escapism and idiocy.

    Isa lang ang masasabi ko sa kanya. mas iniisip pa niya ang negative aspect nito kaysa sa positive aspect. Kinalkal lang niya ang panget sa mga pelikula. di maganda yan.

    iha basahin mo ulit ang review kung hindi mo pa din maintindihan ipatranslate mo sa kakilala mong magaling sa lenggwahe ni uncle sam...

    sa lahat ng puntos niya, sang-ayon ako sa sinabi niya na dapat na ngang i-abolish ang MMFF. isang malaking patawa ang institutsyon na yan at malaking insulto hindi lang sa industriya ng pelikula kundi pati na rin sa mga manonood.

    This is my first time to post to this thread.

    Sino ka bang pac_maniac2 na putak ng putak?
    Puro ka satsat. We heard you loud and clear. Filipinas is a baaaaad movie for you. Sino ka ba? Are you important part of the society or are you one of the FIlipinos na nagdudunungdunungan? You want us to believe na pangit ang Filipinas eh hindi nga! Filipinas got mixed reviews and that's healthy.

    Go to Mayor Malonzo and speak to him about your qualm about the filmfest.

    Appraoch Mother Lily, Tony Gloria, or Charo Santos. Maybe they will give you a chance to make your own movie.

    Better yet, go to one of the undiscovered islands in the Philippines and create your own filmfest.

    The Metro Manila Film Festival has ended and here is the box-office ranking of the nine entries that we gathered from various sources: l. "Captain Barbell" 2. "Crying Ladies" 3. "Fantastic Man" 4. "Bridal Shower" 5. "Mano Po 2" 6. "Malikmata" 7. "Filipinas" 8. "Gagamboy" 9. "Homecoming." Take note that "Bridal Shower" opened only January 1st but it was still able to overtake the box office receipts of the other entries that opened on Christmas Day. And although "Homecoming" is the tailender, it will still end up to be the number one in return of investment because it is produced at a low budget and yet was bought by Columbia Pictures for international distribution, for which it was paid in dollars.
  • MMFF '03 movies' final
    By Edgar Cruz

    Here's the ranking of the MMFF '03 official entries based on 15 days of nationwide gross receipts except for Bridal Shower and Gagamboy, which screened for eight days only: 1. Captain Barbell; 2. Fantastic Man; 3. Crying Ladies; 4. Mano Po 2, My Home; 5. Malikmata; 6. Bridal Shower; 7. Gagamboy; 8. Filipinas; and 9. Homecoming. As the filmfest's Best Picture, Crying Ladies rallied to third position, but it was not good enough to snatch the top position from Captain Barbell, which turned out to be the festival's biggest winner, right Manay Ethel Ramos?

    in filipinas, her character is sooooo kawawa but you don't sympathize with her kasi she is trying so hard to be kawawa.

    I'm not sure we're supposed to sympathize with the character at all. Yolanda is an anti-hero. Against her better judgment, she allowed herself to be swayed by the family's wishes and abandoned her one true love to secure her brother's chances at getting a US visa. She was too afraid to stand up to her family and fight for her man, someone her family does not approve of. Years have passed yet she still bears a grudge against her sister who got pregnant and got married after Yolanda herself took the blame for encouraging them to hide the relationship. She took on the role of family martyr all by herself, eventually the family learned to depend on that. So Yolanda grew cross, self-absorbed and unreasonable. That scene where Yolanda resents Emman's wife taking a loan from Gloria ("may pera naman ako, manghihiram ka pa sa ibang tao" -- something like that), Yolanda was b*tching around for no reason. Then she got back to the source of her bitterness, the past she was holding on to, the same thing she barely took hold of when it was still present, and she realized all was in vain. Her ex was smarting when he asked her not to visit him in prison, and for good reason. Overcome by guilt and shame, she didn't have the courage to face his anger and disappointment and willingly disappeared. She was kidding herself if she thought he would wait for her and welcome her with open arms. She may have suspected this all along but was too scared to realize it. Proven weak and powerless, she snaps at her siblings, that's all she could do. Mother Filipinas falls unconscious and Yolanda has an epiphany. She decides to pick up the pieces, find her voice and move on. Finally.

    If the actress appeared trying hard to be kawawa, I think it's because Yolanda made and thought of herself as kawawa, so in that sense Maricel played the part.

    My reading here is that Yolanda is that apathetic individual who just whines and complains about what's wrong with this country but does nothing decisive or significant about it or refuses to take a stand on anything yet puts the blame on everybody but himself/herself (special mention to those who go about saying "si Pinoy kasi ganito, si Pinoy kasi ganyan, ang hirap kasi kay Pinoy... kaya wala tayong asenso e").

    that is one way to look at it.

    but i am not sure either if you may consider yolanda as such. i don't think she's an anti-hero at all. just like any soap's main protagonist, yolanda is made to suffer from the ignominy of her own doings. she's passive. she lets others get the better of her. people around her manipulate her because she allows them. she is suffering because... either she's being a good daughter/sister or she's just plain stupid.

    notwithstanding the symbolisms, filipinas is soap. as schmaltzy as a soap. it has all the screaming, whining and slapping you normally see in a soap.

    maybe it's not her fault that the character is written that way (and i don't blame her if filipinas was badly written). still i feel she should've done it with restraint. instead of outcrying, outscreaming and outacting her coactors.
  • renzrenz Banned by Admin PExer
    and that's how the director wanted her to play her role, right? or perhaps her role requires her to be hysterical? pac, di ba dapat the movie reflects the reality. in reality ba, you can act with restraint kung andaming problema at away sa loob ng tahanan? magngungoyngoy ka lang ba sa isang tabi after all the years na hindi narinig ang boses mo bilang miyembro ng pamilya? sa kwento pa lang, nagsisigaw si yolanda nong new year dahil sa punong puno na siya right? kung ako siguro yun, pag puno na ako, it's either na magbabasag ako ng bote ng beer o dili kaya'y magpaputok ng baril (kung may baril). hehehe. babae si yolanda, kaya dapat lang siyang magngangawa. right?

    i have seen some parts of madrasta sa cinema one and cant stand it di ko tinapos dahil doon sa restraint acting ni sharon. there was so much noise about "ang tanging ina" and when my officemate lend me a copy, nakatulog ako sa second cd. hehehe. i did not enjoy it though gusto ko ang mga antics ni ai ai dati. sabi nila, maganda ang prosti, pero nang mapanood ko, nakatulog uli ako. hehee. ang maganda sa iba, di maganda sa akin. kaya tama ang old adage na "beauty is in the eye of the beholder". kaya unfair namang tawaging **** hanga ang nagkagusto sa filipinas. hehehe. sana may bridal shower din para mag init sa medyo malamig na klima ng saudi. hehhe.

    pac, i think the explanation of nailbiter is more sensible pero i need to see the movie pa (bibili nga ako baka may pirated copy na dito sa saudi, hehehe. no choice pac, kasi walang original dito). kung magustuhan ko, i'll tell you. honestly, pac, di ako masyadong nanonood ng pelikulang pilipino except sa cinema one na lang. pero dahil dito sa thread na ito, panoorin ko lahat then i can share my thoughts too.
  • pac_maniac2pac_maniac2 Banned by Admin PExer
    problem is, filipinas is NOT reality. it is soap. or if you do not want to take my word, take lito zulueta's: "If the movie were a newspaper, it would be one with several glaring banner headlines trying to bump one another out. If it were a dish, it would be sinigang, with ketchup thrown in." that is the kind of reality the film wants to depict.

    like i said, hysterics like sex scenes need to be handled with care. or it would come out tasteless or downright laughable. i find maria's hysterics in filipinas laughable. and before you even argue, ikaw na ang nagsabi, "beauty is ...." (well i see no beauty in filipinas ;) )

    that nailbiter's explanation is more sensible, well i said then that he is the most sensible pro-Filipinas pexer. he is. i do not agree with him but neither do i dismiss him as a rabid maricelian.

    besides, that is YOUR observation. if i didn't know you, or if we didn't have a past, i could easily say THAT is the opinion of a regular movie observer. but i know you. you are a maricelian. are you not? ;)

    dont get me wrong. i respect your opinion, notwithstanding your obvious bais(es). :)
  • renzrenz Banned by Admin PExer
    i am an admirer of maricel - but that's beside the point.

    i am first and foremost, a moviegoer just like all of us here. basta maganda ang movie, panonoorin ko kahit sino ang bida. kahit ano ang topic ng movie, basta it catches my attention. when i was still in the philippines, basta pelikula dati ni rosanna roces (na tingin ko gusto mo) di ko pinapalampas. hehehe. minsan sabay pelikula ni rosanna at amanda page. nanood ako ng basa sa dagat (if i am not mistaken) sa harisson tapos lipat ako ng mega mall para naman sa pelikula ni amanda page. hehee. pero noon yun, when i was still younger. pag may advance screening na "fleshy movie", punta din ako. hehhe. pero since i am in saudi arabia, medyo nawala ang hilig ko sa pelikulang pilipino.

    about filipinas, you quoted lito zulueta, you dont agree with his review sa crying lady, but you agreed on his review sa filipinas?
    pero marami din ang nag rereview na "must see" ang filipinas kahit medyo "flawed" ito and could have been better. iba iba ang taste ng tao pagdating sa pagsabi ng maganda. at kahit paano, kumita din ang pelikula. what more kung ito ang naging best picture?
  • pac_maniac2pac_maniac2 Banned by Admin PExer
    i'm not exactly a fan of rosanna. i admire her candor, but iam not that impressed with her as an actor. i din't like her work with carlitos. i like her more in her less pretentious movies esp those she made with seiko, like patikim ng pinya and machete 2. i didnt see basa sa dagat. it was only in la vida rosa wherein i think she shows depth.

    yes, i don't agree with lito zulueta's view that crying ladies is anti filipino. and yes i ithink his metaphor for filipinas is apt, "a newspaper with several headlines bumping each other out or a sinigang with ketchup thrown in." di ba mas encouraging pa yung analogy ko? if regine or lani misalucha were to do an album with social commentary produced by vehnee saturno, the end product would be very much like filipinas.

    yes many have said filipinas is significant notwithstanding the flaws. one of them is one i truly admire, conrad de quiros. just the same i still find it pretentious. take out the symbolisms and filipinas is nothing but a nicely photographed soap.
  • pac_maniac2pac_maniac2 Banned by Admin PExer
    kumita ang filipinas?

    i don't know paano mo nasabi yan e andiyan ka sa saudi. try nating i compute...

    usually ang production cost ng isang pelikula is eight to ten million pesos. eto yung mga pelikulang walang elaborate costumes, visual effects at kung anu ano pang factors. it safe to say na filipinas ws given a ten million production budget or a little bit more kasi may fiesta scene, may bombing scene, rain scene at saka helicopter scene. so mejo madugo ang produksyon nito. then talent fees. how many big named stars ang kasama dito? maricel, richard, dawn, armida, etc... so talent fees pa lang taga na. ten million is a conservative estimate para sa talent fees ng cast and staff. then marketing. how much does it cost to mount a decent marketing campaign for a film as big as filipinas? siguro conservative na din ang ten million. anjan ang publicity, advertising spots, promo tours, etc... then taxes. magkano nga ba ang tax na binabayad ng producer. considering that the film wasn't submitted (?) to CEB, buo ang tax na binayad nito. or so i think. so compute mo yan...

    then let's ask, how much ang gross earnings ng pelikula? kung paniniwalaan natin ang report na ang no. 4 sa ranking e kumita ng 40 to 45 million, magkano kaya ang kinita ng filipinas na tinatayang nasa no. 7. although may report na ito'y pang no. 8. siguro naman safe na ang 35 million na estimate.

    now do the math. ;)
