Papahuli ba naman ang idol nating lahat na si Ramon Bautista? Under siya sa isa sa mga taong simple magpatawa, at marami pang iba.

Sila yung mga artista na hindi lang puro mukha, pero may talento sa pag arte at pagkanta talaga. Lahat naman ng artista sa industriya ng showbiz eh magagaling. Sila lang sa aking opinyon ang pagtingin ang mas nakakaangat sa lahat.

In Jeffrey Jeturian’s Kubrador, there is a grandfather grieving the loss of his grandson—his family’s only hope for a better life. There is an apparition of a dead son in his military uniform. There is a husband glued to their television set, watching Wowowee. There are bet collectors scampering like rats when policemen come barging in. And of course, there is Amy (superbly played by Gina Pareño, who earned wide acclaim and truckloads of acting awards for her performance), seeking herself in her own silent ways.

Kubrador is a milestone in Filipino filmmaking because it doesn’t depict poverty in the slums in the usual fucked-up, third-world-is-reeking kind of way. There are several staples—the setting, the atmosphere, and the struggles—but Jeturian never takes advantage of these elements. He, instead, builds a transcendent picture of the lives of people like Amy and her neighbors.

The film revolves around jueteng, a numbers game in the Philippines that still remains illegal to this day. (There have been talks of the game going legal but many lawmakers oppose it.) Kubrador, thankfully, does not blow up with political schematics. While it is relevant, the issue is relegated to the sidelines, focusing more on the film’s protagonist and the people surrounding her.

In a very memorable scene, Amy finds herself lost in the labyrinthine alleys of the squatters’ area where she lives and collects bets. She gets so busy in scribbling down notes and numbers that she doesn’t even notice she’s heading the wrong way, and when she finally does, we get to see the strong lines on her face—no doubt because of her life-long struggle to survive life’s daily race.

Kubrador is a strong narrative and it establishes itself as that. It is a sturdy realist that depicts the life of a poverty-stricken Filipino, without overt exploitation. After all, we realize that this is life as seen through their eyes, this is how they live and this is all they know how to survive Don Jaucian

Shut Up!

I swear Lola Amor is really ticking me off! She is such a drama queen! I don’t understand, I mean why doesn’t she want Zheny to be happy? It seems like all she does is get in everybody’s way! She is so controlling. If my lola was still alive, she would be nothing like Lola Amor. She would want what makes everybody happy -_- she is just as annoying as jean and eddison were.
