The Gifted Is A Quirky, Hilarious, and Gifted Piece of Storytelling

A cinematic endeavor that, for all intents and purposes, brought a gifted director into the limelight. Congratulations to Chris Martinez for crafting a story that has pushed its actors to bring out their God-given gifts in acting. The Gifted is a story of two ugly ducklings geniuses that turned worst enemies from being the best of friends.Anne Curtis plays the obese Zoe Tuazon whereas Cristine Reyes as Aica Tabayoyong has a big nose with a lot of imperfections on her face. Their rivalry started when Zoe aimed to become the number one on the graduating class and not just being the second best to her bestfriend Aica. She used Aica's crush Mark Ferrer (Sam Milby) to distract her in her studies in exchange for meeting all of his school requirements. Writer-director Martinez succeeds in creating a movie that’s different from its contemporaries. A crazy beaut of comedy that brims with wit and manages to be unpredictable until the end. Anne Curtis and Cristine Reyes g

A Taste Of Lav In September

The most celebrated Filipino film of the year finally opens in local theatres on September 10. Since its world premiere at the Cannes film festival,  Norte, Hangganan Ng Kasaysayan  by Lav Diaz has not only been the toast of international film festivals, it has had successful commercial runs in the US and the UK and soon in France and Germany. Critics and moviegoers are united in their praise for Norte, which was named one of the year's top 10 films in the world by the venerable Sight and Sound magazine. It has been named Best Picture by the Philippine critics’ circle, the Gawad Urian. Norte is the story of a man wrongly jailed for murder while the real killer roams free. The murderer is an intellectual frustrated by the cycle of corruption and complacency in our history; the convict is a simple man who only wants a better life for his family. The free man is trapped by his guilt; the imprisoned man finds a mysterious kind of grace. Written by Rody Vera and Lav Diaz, Norte
