A clichéd love triangle, unoriginal story, light skinned actors, thus this film should be sentenced to American Propaganda hell
1 April 2008 | by (Mississauga, Canada) – See all my reviews

You guys better watch out. Sam Milby's celebrity stardom will probably influence him to run for president. He'll probably sing for the majority of his campaign speech. That'll totally win the masses.

Can somebody please recommend to me an actual GOOD indigenous Filipino film? I am really itching to watch something authentic and original. Close To You is a rip-off of American teen flicks (in case some of you don't know, these films have been critically bashed by American audiences and film critics). If it were released in North America, it would have went straight to video, gathering dust on the shelves with Jessica Simpson's crappy movies. I don't understand why this film is highly praised by the Filipinos. Maybe because it features that dreamy euro-Asian dude from Filipino Big Brother -- Sam Milby. Yes! That definitely gives a valid reason to love this film. Okay, I was being sarcastic.

Why haven't I seen a film that captures the heart of the Philippines? I'm still waiting for a Ang Lee of the Philippines. Why aren't there films that portray social dilemmas of the country? i.e. politics, and socio-economic problems? It really sickens me that my country is trying to obscure their authentic identity by trying to be Westernized. Close To You is a perfect example of the downfall of Filipino Cinema. Please, let a director with half a brain produce something worth my time. I want my money back!!!!
