the tone shift and how the film drags kind of bothers me but this was fine. worst thing about this is that it's probably the most boring Taika I've watched
Seen at the Metro Manila Film Festival. This is gonna be a long review.
I'd like to start off by saying something kind of mean, but unfortunately true: the Philippine audience was not ready for this movie. For what it's worth, I do believe that we deserve more than the usual schlock we get every year, but after seeing this afternoon's audience I'm not quite confident that we know what we're getting.
It was absolutely painful to witness my co-moviegoers…
