WANNA CHANGE COZ OF JUANA CHANGE

Saw Juana C. The Movie on its last showing date (giving way to the new Superman movie…which was sad) last night.

It was an interesting movie which tackled many socio-political aspects of everday Filipino life. I was disappointed though.

Disappointed that not a lot of Pinoys were able to watch it. (I guess most would rather watch foreign films, and it only ran for a week in the cinemas)

It’s pretty interesting how it showed the raw and ugly side of political corruption in the country in a funny parody. But while I was watching it I can’t laugh at scenes that were supposed to be funny. I couldn’t laugh because at the back of my mind there’s a voice telling me “Crap, this is how it really is…”

It is difficult to condense so many ideas in a short movie, but Juana C was able to do it. It wasn’t flawless, but the entirety of the message was there. I specially liked the Super Supreme Connections Manager. She was a natural for that role. Sophisticated bitch. Loved her to bits.

Kudos to Juana Change (Mae Paner) and Director Jade Castro for a great job on this movie. A great way to push for social awareness. Now if there’s one superhero flick you should have watched this year, it was this one.
