A Movie is not Only a Movie

Credits to the Producer of this Film
I have always been a fan of Unpredictable Movies way back when some of them were shown at Channel 2 when I was young. I am not sure if you remember those kinds of movies that were directed by some of the top caliber film makers with the likes of Lino Brocka, Ishmael Bernal, Mike de Leon and Peque Gallaga. My favorites were Maynila: Sa mga Kuko ng Liwanag, Oro, Plata,Mata and Tinimbang Ka Ngunit Kulang. I love how they have executed the scenes and how the ending had been revealed. These kinds of films are definitely in to the stories which are not that really popular and were not so mainstream. A taste of intriguing facts were uncovered to tickle the minds of all its viewers.

During the 1990's, these types of films had suddenly vanished and had been replaced by mainstream ones which tackles very predictable plots, until Indie Films rose from somewhere. I got interested with it because it tries to resembles how the famous Directors (which were mentioned above) had executed their masterpiece.

The actors and actresses on these kinds of films usually act so naturally, thus the emphasis was always being put on the emotion and not on the actors themselves. I just thought of this one upon watching "KEKA" last Sunday on GMA 7. Katya Santos played the part of Keka (Francesca Jose), although she and almost all of the casts were from mainstream group, what caught my interest is the story itself and the music (I love Sugarfree's Unang Araw!! :)...very unpredictable. Of course credits to Quark Henares who directed the film.
