The origin of this post is my newly-minted at recently-claimed ninong, Joel David idea. Gawa raw ako ng omnibus MMFF2016 post where you guys can find all the reviews, so here it is. 🙂

#SavingSally :#MMFF2016 #TheKneeJerkCritic Movie Review

Minsan yung mensahe wala dun sa kwento ng pelikula kundi nandun sa ingat at alaga na ibinigay sa paggawa nung pelikula.

Wa etchos, habang pinanonood ko siya iniimagine ko a young Joseph Gordon-Levitt doing Marty. Rhian will still be Sally though, saka si Kuya Bodjie IS Kuya Bodjie. Cate Blanchett could sub for Shamaine. And Antonio Banderas will be Zorro. Ganun ang casting. Basta.

THE KNEE JERK CRITIC MMFF2016 TRAILER REVIEW: Saving Sally

If ever may contest ng pa-indie-han sa pagitan ng walong entries sa #mmff2016, eto na yun. #savingsally wins hands down.

Eto yung tipo ng movie that the artfilm houses and filmfestivals are made for, yung pelikulang nagtetest ng waters, ng genre, ng form na nangangailangan lang na mapanood ng audience to bloom. Eto yung movie nagpupush ng envelop as far as it could, soooo far na posibleng hindi ito maapreciate ng bigger masses pero might attract enough audience to change the playing field.
