    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I never imagined a film could take incest to another level!

    The Sea Gypsies

    ★★★½

    Has anyone noticed that they were wearing sneakers during the fight scene between Hassan and Jikiri on the rocky shoreline?! Understandable because even I can’t walk barefooted on those rocks. Aside from that, the ending message of unity between any colour or religion was very admirable and progressive for a 50s Filipino film.

    The Woman Who Left

    ★★★★½

    Panoramic and compelling. Despite clocking in 3 hours and 47 minutes, Lav Diaz manages to keep the audience glued to the screen. The fascinating long shots are shown in ample amount of time that makes you appreciate every single thing in the frame even the smallest things. Charo Santos-Concio's return to acting after a 17-year hiatus is definitely worth it. Her role as Horacio/Renata is benevolent as she constantly helps marginalized people she befriended and at the same time, she prepares for her long-overdue revenge. Her tokens of kindness were done in a seemingly way to equate her impending vengeance towards her ex-lover.

    The movie dwells between fiction and reality. It does it so well that it's hard to pinpoint what's real and what's not. What a brilliant mockumentary!
