An Honor for Juan

Rayan Dulay and Ace Ricafort for The Game in Juan's Life (Ang Laro ng Buhay ni Juan)

Congratulations to Joselito Altarejos and our team behind "Ang Laro ng Buhay ni Juan" (The Game of Juan's Life) for receiving an honorable mention at the Chicago's Reeling Film Festival 2010. The festival descirbed the film as a:
candid look at gay life in the squalid slums of Manila focuses on a young performer (Ray An Dulay) at a private sex club who dreams of returning to his hometown in the provinces, even though this would mean leaving his handsome, devoted lover (Jer...ico Antonio) . The direct, honest performances and Richard Gonzales 's evocative score give this downbeat but unsentimental 2009 drama an understated power, and Pao Santiago Pangan's intimate, verite-style cinematography fosters a compelling, documentary-style authenticity.

IN FAIRNESS 'TEH...i pulled out the DVD and saw it again. for the seond time i found the movie drab and dready, worthless of my time and $2. who, in his right frame of mind woud honour such a movie deserves to be seperated from his bollocks. however, a special mention diploma for its effort to make it to the festival is well earned (tsk, tsk and who said i am mean). other than that, it is a basket material. Lex, your collection of paper weight and door jamb must be growing, eh.
