Sikil (Unspoken Love)
(photo courtesy of Josh)
Josh and I finally watched 'Sikil' last Sunday night. Supposedly it was Saturday, kaso nalula ako sa DVD collections nya when I stayed for the night over his pad. I ended up watching them on his laptop!
I'll post some of the clips soon, beginning with "Sex Drive". But, I digress yet again!
Anyway, technically and story-wise, mas maganda ang 'Sikil' compare sa 'Parola'. But there's no much nudity on this one, yun nga lang.
Overall, I would give the film 8 out of 10 points.
>>> WARNING: SPOILER ALERT BELOW <<<
Nga pala, mega-shopping muna si Josh sa Trinoma before we left for Robinson's Galleria where 'Sikil' has its exclusive screening.
First half of the movie, super bagal ng pacing. I like the second half of the film though. Ung intense na ang scenes between Will Sandejas and Ken Escudero.
Speaking of the two main actors, okay din acting nila. I would also like to commend Ken on the scene where he found out Adong (Will Sandejas) was beaten up and tortured. Galeng!
Cute ang story. Minsan mushy and corny, but we must admit lahat tayo dumaan sa ganoong setup. I myself experienced it when I was in Junior High. I like this girl, but my bestfriend liked her as well. Since bestfriend ko siya, I went out of the picture. Straight pa ata ako nun! LOLz
I cried on the mother-and-son meets again scene. Really! Bato ang puso mo pag hindi ka naiyak dun. I instantly remembered a similiar scene from "Blue Moon" but with Boots Anson-Roa and Eddie Garcia. Waahhh!!!
Kudos to Ms. Sylvia Sanchez who played the role of Enzo's (Ken Escudero) mother.
And finally, a non-tragic Pinoy gay flick! I thought merong mamamatay sa kanila. It's not a happy-gay-ending, but ok na rin. At least feel-good pa rin paglabas ng moviehouse. I'll definitely buy the original DVD when it comes out.
I was especially shocked when I got home in Muntinlupa around 11pm and received a text message from Josh saying, "...ingatz Adong!" Nyahaha!
Sa uulitin So.... err, Josh pala! Hehe!
PS: Now ko lang fully na-appreciate si Ken Escudero. Nyehehe!
