    An insanely creative illustration of how isolation causes burden to someone amid these worsening times. Maria Estela Paiso is someone to look forward to with all her genius ideas.

    i get so sad sometimes

    ★★★★

    The technicalities are all admirable, and I even love how it feels so close to home as someone living from South Cotabato. We rarely see local films centering in Mindanao these recent years so it’s really nice how it portrayed concepts like queer awakening in provinces with many conservative beliefs. I wish it could have given more details and have concretely shown actual conflicts for me to even connect with the film. But I’d be lying if I say that I did not get so sad with the happenings at the end. I am Marco and I am also Jake.

    Barber's Tales literally said "Ang lugar ng kababaihan ay sa pakikibaka!"

    Napakahusay.
