    FIRST OF ALL, ANDAMI KONG THOUGHTS PERO ETO SILA IN BULLETED FORM📍

    📍 why do i feel like halos lahat ng narrative ng STAR cinema dito mag stem out 😭 like yung mga back stories ng bawat characters sobrang ganda and sobrang pwedeng maging stand alone film 😭 Parang dito kumuha ng maraming film references in terms of writing ganon hahahaha Feel ko lang naman pero di ko rin sure 😆

    📍 VILMA SANTOS IS GOLD, nakakaloka parang gusto ko…

    This film disregards premeditated notions of editing and script analysis. It’s super raw and the emotions are just so amazingly well put out 😭 The casts are super great which brought the film into a whole new level 😭 kathniel who? Hahaha
