A timely movie about a controversial subject matter.
13 September 1999 | by (Makati City,Philippines.) – See all my reviews

Lino Brocka's celebrated work about a highly-controversial subject (a military invasion on a faraway province after the takeover of President Corazon Aquino in 1986) is certainly worth of watch, which is basically why it made it to the Directors' Fortnight in Cannes '89. The script is well-written, which makes good performances (particularly Bembol Roco as the cult leader) and suspense in every scene. Until now, it hasn't received wide theatrical or video release. Just check out a copy if you're lucky enough to find one. I've seen it twice and I want to see it more. Excellently done. 9/10.
