All in all, #Alive started out pretty good but the intensity waned as the movie progressed. It was a good film but it failed to commit to the horror idea. As a result, it became a conversation about mental health and social media. Go figure.

‘Batman 2021’ : First Thoughts

Cinemalaya 2020: ‘The Slums’ Review

The Slums doesn’t get overly profound with its messaging but it does get its point across in a straightforward manner. There were attempts to be funny but all of this is just a facade for entertainment value. For those who understand how it is to be poor, it is truly heartbreaking.

If we want to bring local cinema to the attention of the world, our filmmakers should be open to different world views and approaches. Our local industry should be mindful of quality even while balancing it with profitability.
