Hesus May Be Dead, But the Film is Very Much Alive!
Quick post-screening recommendation for Victor Kaiba Villanueva's Patay Na Si Hesus
: Watch it like your life depends on it.
It is uproariously funny, but its drama also cuts deep. It will affirm your love for Filipino film, and it will make you believe Bisaya filmmaking has become a formidable force. The audience I saw it with tonight hooted and laughed -- and by God, there's nothing like the nuances of Cebuano to really relish every line-reading. Spread the word when the film opens for a regular run in Rob on August 16 for the Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino!
You will thank the cinema gods you caught this gem of a film.
