One of the best movies I've seen
The last great movie I saw was In the Mood For Love, a masterpiece directed by Wong Kar Wai. I can remember the goosebumps and that feeling of joy when I saw that movie's ending. I guess I feel that way whenever I had a great cinematic experience. With Kubrador (The Bet Collector), that feeling came back again. My eyes teared up during the ending sequence and that feeling came back, it was a great experience.
There are so many junk movies being created in the Philippines so avoid them as much as I can but thank God for this one and thank God for those who worked hard on this film to make it as a film worthy of its praise in various film festivals around the world. Kubrador deserves it.
There is a cinematic revolution happening in the Philippines, the ones who will make films not for mindless entertainment but for personal expressions they wish to share to the people willing to see them, like art.
Thanks Jeffrey Jeturian for directing the movie.
