"For the youth and for the truth that we continuously fight for."

Last night, My brother and I went to Fully Booked Global City to watch Joaquin Valdez's movie screening of bulong. My brother was invited by Joaquin two days ago when we were in orange segment. Luckily, my brother thought of tagging me along for experience and to meet people.

Bulong is a version fantasy short film (about 30 minutes) of the allegory of the cave. It is about Lucio who is working for a "system" that is full of uncertainty. Then as he works, he hears voices (bulong) that he listens too but has hesitations if he should follow it.



- Good lighting.
-Simple script.
-Great message.
-Mind boggler.

- Long intro.
- Inhibitions about the lead actor being a reflection of a Pilipino.
- Lack of emphasis in the peak of the movie.
- Inconsistent transition.

.... to be continued....

** The movie is not recommend to little kids who may not easily get the message. Like last night, they were a number of young kids who has no idea of the movie.

Oh yeah, i was wondering who the cute and tall guy in front of me. Then i remembered when i looked in the guest book. It was melvin abundo, the kid (few years ago) in 5 and up. so cool. he was my crush then.
