finally got to see big time! (Arkeofilms) on the big screen. watched it with Gab october last year at the ccp when cinemalaya screened the finalists.
too bad though... there couldn't have been more than 30 people in that huge SM cinema for the last full show. i was hoping it would be packed as well. ang pagdadalaga ni maximo oliveros, another finalist from the same festival made it good in the box office. it was just as funny, but then again the brand of humor differed.
well anyway, it was still a lot of fun. atleast that's how it was for US (that's me with the dyke-coven). Michael de Mesa rocked as Don Manolo. Jamie Wilson (as Wilson) was also pretty convincing. never mind that he wasn't the "pretty boy-conio kid" that he was supposed to be. Atleast he could act.
now, it was brilliant casting too with Joanne Miller (as Melody) as the star-struck bimbo. whilst the protagonists, Danny and Jonas had very good chemistry... a loveteam in the making? he he he. well, it was nothing like Brokeback Mountain, but ya gotta admit that some scenes were dripping with (unintentional, perhaps?) homo-eroticism.
or maybe that's just ME again, doing a QUEER reading on most everything! :-D
wonder why this film isn't as mabenta as we had hoped it to be.
if it comes out on DVD, you can bet that i'll be watching this movie again!
