Cinemalaya 6 Film Logs (Part 2)

Si Techie, si Teknoboy, at si JuanaB.
New Breed

Director: Art Katipunan
Starring: Aurette Divina, Mercedes Cabral, Christian Vasquez

If you’re a comedy and your jokes do not end with laughter coming from the other side of the screen, then you have a big problem. Fail dot com.

Rating: 2/5

Sampaguita, National Flower

New Breed

Director: Francis Xavier Pasion
Starring: real-life sampaguita vendors

A mosaic of half-baked stories set to the tune of melodrama that is usually found in public affairs programs.

Rating: 2/5

Ang Mundo sa Panahon ng Bato

Special Screening

Director: Mes de Guzman
Starring: Ilyong Biernes, Edwin Pamanian, Rissia Quezon, ZJ Vicente

An unsettling portrait of a rural family’s dissolution because of greed for money and power.

Rating: 3.5/5

Ang Mundo sa Panahon ng Yelo

NETPAC Premieres

Director: Mes de Guzman
Starring: Elijah Castillo

Lo-fi poverty porn that runs on clich├ęs.

Rating: 1/5

The Trial of Mr. Serapio

NETPAC Premieres

Director: Khavn dela Cruz
Starring: Teo Antonio, Mike Coroza, Vim Nadera, Jess Santiago

This 40-year old one-act play did not translate well to the screen in the hands of Khavn. It is laughably theatrical, filled with distractive gimmickry and unnecessary fillers.

Rating: 1/5

I doubt that they'll be available in Malaysia, though I hope I'm wrong. Some of them deserve to be screened outside the country. I'll watch Inception this Sunday. I'm ready to be mesmerized.
