    Logging this again. My undergraduate thesis Regal Baby is about the book and this film. If you are a Filipino student who might need my thesis for reference, please contact me. I'd like to help you and I'm close to graduation, anyway.

    This is a reminder that anti-indigenous violence is an institutional, systemic policy of the Philippine government. This is inherited from its colonial masters and continues today as part of the neocolonial assault against Filipinos. The current violence faced by the Lumads is a legacy of American presence in the Philippines. They encouraged Catholic settler colonialism to pacify and subdue the indigenous and Muslim peoples of Mindanao and use their lands for colonial resource exploitation.

    Just like other Pinoy jukebox musicals, this is a performance waiting for a story. (That's the problem with most comedy and musical forms now but that's another story.)

    A deeply cynical, unfunny farce. Nothing I hate more than Americans getting self-righteous and individualistic, trying to do a lot to disguise the fact that they don't have anything new to say and anything worthwhile to contribute. Americans are truly annoying. If there is a God, they would have spared us from Euro-American settler colonialism and their culture. Useless pieces of shit.
