(Tagalog with English subtitles) The Filipino equivalent to Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. On his hospital bed, a dying uncle gives final instructions to his two nephews: deliver a brown bag in exchange for a package. This sets into motion a ton of clever dialogue, sex jokes and satiric parodies that wink at the audience. Written by
The Philippines' answer to Kevin Smith flicks with deeper meaning
First off I'm a critic on all genres of film and for me Direk Gallaga's Pinoy Blonde is a mixture of cult classic flicks and how the time frame filming method was used to all wood-by film goers you'll think that this is nothing but a rip-off of all cult classics such as kill bill and a film bombarded with cameos, but its more than that, its about independent filmmakers giving lecture to the best flicks that came up and turned both Hollywood and Philippines cinema lines from Lino Brocka and Ishmael Bernal, substantial quotes from Spiderman to kill bill, and the ever famous Vilma Santos Burlesq Scene being told again. People from this generation don't know anything about that and this movie can educate them especially the young aspiring indie film makers. As the time frame filming goes, it is said in a lot of film schools that it is not possible to incorporate it in a movie, but as far as is goes two movie pulled it off. "Breaking The Waves With Emily Watson." and now for the first time in Philippine cinema "Pinoy Blonde." A Cult hit that I consider a genius masterpiece. It takes a real film buff to understand this movie and I mean serious.
