Lights, Camera, Blow Job!


(The male stars of Sagwan)

Recently, I received several text messages from different people from the film industry regarding the case of MTRCB (Movie and Television Review and Classification Board) against gay films exhibited in UP Film Center.

They were blaming the film "Sagwan" as the precipitating factor for this case. They were even blaming its director Monti Parungao for his appearing in a blow job scene with one of his actors which earned the ire of some industry insiders making them raise their concern publicly on the "growing gay pornography" in UP. I also came across several indignant blog readers on this controversial scene in the film.

Let me share exactly what I know on this alleged "blow job" scene from the director.

First, the director is not new to oncam blow job scenes. He is an actor who has appeared in the films Masahista and La Vida Loca. He also played the role of "Perida" in "Ang Lalake sa Parola" (The Man in the Lighthouse) where he did get to have a blow job scene with a teenager and gets beaten up in the end.

And more importantly, I don't think he could ever suck his actor's cock oncam. As to my recollection he is still sane and he would never do it in front of his camera men, his staff and his friends.

And why would he even bother doing it oncam when he could always do it in the privacy of his own room?

Hi Lex,

I have not seen the movie, the video (if ever there is already one), but I have also read the comments made by other blog readers.

I am no prude, I like to see sex scenes in movies. So having said that already, I hope nobody tags me as a hypocrite, as is the usual accusation hurled by others to people who gives out comments pertaining to sense and sensibilities.

I think what had made some people react indignantly to the scene in sagwan is that it was the director of the film who was seen doing it on the actor who played a character in the movie.

Now, whether the actor who was the recipient of the blowjob had the scene performed on him by his director willingly or not, does not matter anymore.

What it is is plain and simple. It left a bad taste in the mouth (though not necessarily the same goes for the good director and yes, pun intended for good reasons or not) to the moviegoers. And that included gays who lined up at UP for the uncut movie premiere showing of the movie, who by the way, do expected to see flesh and perhaps a bit more from the guys in the movie itself.

But to see the director doing it to the actor of the film? Perhaps if the scene involving the director wasn't a blowjob scene (it doesn't matter if the scene itself was not real and was just all camera angles, etc.), then I am sure that there would have been no violent reactions from the readers and viewers alike. Oh perhaps, there would still be comments on how cheaply made the movie was, too much flesh, irrelevant scenes, etc. But none of the kind that centers on the controversial blowjob scene by no less than the movie director done on one of the actors of the film.

And yes, Lex, the above comments are mine. I do not speak for the rest of the gay guys out there who could be for or against the current situation at the UP theatre and MTRCB stepping in.

i can't believe that this is still being debated and that it gathers controversy. this kind of stifling of creativity is exactly what stifles real economic development and forces us to be a semi-feudal country.

dapat na maregulate ang mga pelikulang nagkukunwaring art film, kasi nabababoy ang UPFI!

nararapat din na magkaroon ng screening committee ang UP, upang masala ang mga pito pito movies na naglalaman ng walang kawawaan na kahalayan, nagtatago sa pagiging indie movie para maipalabas ng uncut sa UPFI!!

ang mga ipinalabas sa UPFI nitong mga huling buwan ay talaga namang maaari ng tawaging PORNO!! mga pelikulang nagkukunwaring mga indie film sa layuning maipalabas ng un cut sa UPFI!!

katulad ng BUTAS, SAGWAN, SHOWBOYS.. lahat ng ito ay ipinalabas sa loob lamang ng dalawang buwan..

FULL FRONTAL NUDITY (erect at flaccid state) ng mga male sex organ..

eksenang na tsinutsupa ng isang bakla na talagang kitang kita at naka focus pa ang cam sa tit* na labas masok sa bibig nung bakla( sa pelikulang sagwan-ang bakla sa movie na may ka sex na dalawang lalake ay ang DIREKTOR mismo NG SAGWAN, SI MONTI PARUNGAO)..

sa BOOKING, isang menor de edad ang nagpakita ng erect na burat.. ang tanong kailangan ba ito sa eksana? HINDI!

SA SHOYBOYS AT BUTAS, ganoon din.. mga eksenang hubaran, full frontal nudity ng mga starlet na nasa erect at flaccid state ang titi AT NAKA FOCUS ANG KAMERA DITO.. hindi nadaanan lang ng kamera, kundi nakababad sa kanilang burat,buong telon yun lang ang makikita..

ang mga eksena/pelikulang bang ito ay makakatulong upang maibangon ang movie industry, sa palagay ko ay hindi!

I haven't seen the film, pero sa ganitong mga pangyayari nasisira ang mas mabigat na gay issues, kasi naman itong mga kapatid nating mga bading parang ipinaglalantarang nila ang kanilang mga "conquests"' which by the way is an attitude not confined to gays only (but if done even by straights, many protest and abhor); gays, like other people, should also as much as possible maintain a sense of decency in everything.

sana ginawa na lang nilang porno film. tutal hindi naman siya matinong pelikula. marami pa ang manunuod at bibili ng dvd. hindi na sana siya nagpanggap na lehitimong pelikula o matinong pelikula na may sex scenes or nudity. para hindi na napuna. next time gawa nalang sila ulit ng cappucino boys goes porn starring the cappuccino boys with the director. di na yun kailangan ng kwento. wala pang extra. kahit low budget pwede. so next time kung gagawa din ng kababuyan, gawin nyo ng triple x porno. wala ng kwento kwento. tutal wala naman kwenta. parausan lang ang objective ng porno. yan lang naman gusto ng mga ibang bading. makakita ng titi at kahalayan. para sa ibang humahanap ng matinong gay film, wag na tayo umasa dahil wala masyadong matinong director at manunulat na makakagawa ng matinong gay film.
