- Amelie. Her well-reserved character and generous heart to help others reminds me of how rare it is for people to act that way. She is so good in making other people’s lives better that they aren’t even aware that she is actually doing it.
- Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Blue hair. Orange hair. Love at the wrong time. Rich in psychological concept. It makes me stick with the memories of the past (no matter how painful they are) because it will all make sense in the long run.
- Lost in Translation. Who wouldn’t want to get lost in a foreign city and meet someone who shares the same heartache, the same emptiness? You might want to watch the ending over and over and listen to the song on repeat.
- Pulp Fiction. You might think this is an odd one out, but hey, it’s a Quentin Tarantino film! (I love that guy) People might think he is overrated, but I think he is a genius. Check out his films and its dialogues. Two hours long. Too violent on some scenes and obscene language.
- Incendies. The people I recommended this to thought I’m a smart lass and that I have great taste in film. Haha! Great cathartic experience. Trust me!
- Chungking Express. Wong Kar-Wai film. Another brilliant mind! Light. Not cheesy and not even romantic. Kumbaga, tamang timpla lang.
- The Breakfast Club. Not something we can totally relate to during our highschool years, pero it’s similar in some ways. The way we think or why we act the way we used to act. Cliques! Parang Highschool Musical without the musical and cheesy characters.
- Ang Nawawala. It’s my favorite Filipino film! I can totally relate since music was my scene when I was in Manila. I love the soundtrack too.
- Rakenrol. Although I haven’t watched this yet, I recommend it. Siguro dahil music lover nga ako at pinangarap ko rin magka banda. At gustung gusto ko gumawa ng music videos. The reason I haven’t watched this yet is because I am waiting for its DVD release. I am, in no way, going to watch a pirated copy of this. Or any other films I love, in particular.
See, I just recommended my favorite ones. Lol. Marami pa. Pero these films are those that have stayed with me kaya if you notice all of them are old na.
Sometimes, I just wish that I was more honest with myself. And with others. I wish that I wasn’t always hiding myself behind all those badly written poems and all those sad stories I attempt to tell through my photographs and films. I hope I could just say something like, hey, I’m sad because…
