Brief

Amok is a masterpiece as a seamless patchwork of narratives, and is noteworthy in its use of atmosphere (that noisy, disconcerting EDSA heat that sticks skin to clothing). Ang Huling Araw ng Linggo reminds me of the Cinemalaya back when indie wasn't hip--excessively sentimental scenes, poignant scriptwriting, low-res cinematography. Gravity isn't about space exploration as it is about a woman's thrilling journey, but why should it be set in space?
