The images of the rebellion against the dictator Ferdinand Marcos in 1989 are real; those of future rebellions become increasingly crazy and musical. Two years ago,...

Overdosed Nightmare is Kidlat Tahimik's Perfumed Nightmare without the perfume, a pure nightmare set in wounded Manila, a close-up view of all that gangrene and pus.

Philippine New Wave

directed by Khavn De La Cruz, 1973- (Philippines: Privately Published), 1 hour 13 mins
Not so much a documentary, nor a compendium of interviews, but an almost rarefied glimpse into a wholesale revolt from a rigid paradigm long upheld by the west as the only way to make a film. If you want to see how technology has democratized cinema, here is the tip of a massive iceberg.
