Matti’s Inferno

THE FILIPINO film auteur Eric Matti’s BuyBust was two years in the making and the extraordinary care and effort that went into crafting this action-packed (an understatement) extravaganza are evident. Overall, it’s a pleasant surprise to find the many frenetic fight scenes so competently choreographed, although somewhat haphazardly staged. There are incoherently sincere homagic echoes of classic cinematic blood fests like Kill Bill and the Mad Max movies. Through the stylized grime and luridly lit detritus, BuyBust occasionally shines with sparks of wit and fun. Nonetheless, the depictions of crazed slum dwellers as rabidly violent and lethally zombie-like, raise disturbing questions, foremost of which is: does this characterization of the poor intend to justify killing them off in such inordinate numbers in real life?.....»»

‘Kalokohan ’yang gender equality’–reaction to male domestic abuse

Our column last week on male domestic abuse seemed to have stirred a hornet's nest. Based on online comments, readers looked at the problem from different perspectives, which reminds me of the fable of the five blind men and the elephant. The blind men touched different parts of the elephant, and their individual descriptions of how an elephant looks expectedly differed from one another. Conscientious Filipino wrote: "A lot of people are suffering from mental illness or low self-esteem. Some people have a need to lash out, and the usual targets are the people close to them. Couples should recognize this and seek help. One way is through church groups like Marriage Encounter,...Keep on reading: ‘Kalokohan ’yang gender equality’–reaction to male domestic abuse.....»»
