A Lola Watches "Butas"

Marco Morales, star of "Butas"

A 67 year old lola (grandmother) recounted to me the incident when she went to watch the erotic digital film "Butas" (Loophole) at the Robinsons Manila. And she shared how she was "interrogated" by the guard before she entered the cinema.


GUARD: Lola, alam niyo po ba na bold ang pinapanood niyo? (grannie, do you know that you are about to watch a sexually graphic film?)


LOLA: Oo (yes)


GUARD: Sigurado ho kayo. Hindi ho maganda yan. Nakakahilo. (Are you sure? The film's not pretty good. You might feel dizzy)


LOLA: A talaga?


But the grandmother has decided to enter the movie house.


GUARD: Ma'am, siguraduhin niyong may dala kayong gamot sa high blood! (please make sure you have your hypertensives with you!)


And lola decides to watch "Butas".


And she liked Marco Morales.

I think the whole Yaoi manga/anime phenomenon in Japan where you have heterosexual women from teenage through lola ages having created and maintained a huge market for gay love stories (and gay fantasy porn) signals that gay themed fantasy has a role in the psyche beyond the gay men.

UP NO PLACE FOR GAY PORNO

by Mario E. Bautista

WE'RE alarmed because the UP Film Institute is fast getting the reputation of being a haven for pornographic films. Several uncut films with full frontal nudity and simulated sex acts, all gay oriented, are being shown there one after another. It's not within the jurisdiction of the MTRCB so they can show all the lewd films they want with impunity.

We're also against censorship but only if a film is artistically well done. Unfortunately for the UP Film Institute, most of the gay films they show are plain trash and have very little artistic value whatsoever. We're not homophobic, but even in the name of artistic freedom, most of these sleazy films don't deserve to be shown in the country's premiere state university. They're not artistic at all but mostly crude sexploitation flicks that cater mainly to the prurient interest of their gay patrons.

Sorry to say it but the UP Film Institute has really become an outlet for smut. Paging UP President Emerlinda Roman, can't a committee be formed to screen the gay films that they show and make sure that only those with artistic merits be allowed for exhibition? Garbage flicks should not be allowed at all to be shown there and besmirch UP's reputation as the country's top learning center. They should go to where they rightfully belong: the waste basket.

Naku, mga bakla, nag-uumpisa nang magsalita ang ilang sektor laban sa lumalalang gay films. Even Manoling Morato commented against it sa Dial M show nya last Monday, Feb. 23, 2009.

Kaya, mga sisters, enjoy the gay films in UP while they last. I can sense na matatapos na ang maliligayang araw natin.

By the way, I think Mario E. Bautista, the respected Movie critic, wrote the above article after seeing "Sagwan" last February 5, 2009. Perhaps, after seeing "Sagwan", he decided he could not take anymore of these bold gay films! Kasalanan lahat ito ni Monti Parungao, director-actor of "Sagwan".

Garbage flicks - I, this time, having seen gay films masquerading as indie films, agree, but not with the censorship, no.

We're only against censorship if its artistically done -- which means, he against censorship as long as Mario is the censor.

Garbage films can be very helpful for an artistic community and for a movie industry. It helps to see what doesn't work. You need shit to grow flowers!
