    Glazer's "The Zone of Interest" meticulously employs the film's sound design and its bleak appeal to convey a narrative of profound intensity. The experience could have been more staggering if witnessed in a theater, as the impact is not as profound when viewed remotely.

    Bullying has been tackled by countless films to expose its relevance by correlating it to academic pressure, and the likes of it. However, Better Days highlighted its themes of bullying by starting with what looks like a clichΓ© story but sooner divulges to an interesting and compelling narration of teenage life, school, justice, love, and many more.

    P.S. Please save your tears for later. Literally! The ending will drain your tear ducts, for sure.

    Kuwentong Barbero nga ba? O Kuwentong Katotohanan?

    A lot of films have discussed the crucial times of Martial Law, but this film [Barber’s Tales] did such an amazing job to reroute in a braver and more impacting way. A superb manifestation of female empowerment during the period of male dominance. The chills started flowing from my spine when Eugene's character "Marilou" unleashes her suppressed will for vengeance. The ending is just *chefs kiss* revolutionary!

    Laban Kababaihan! Di pa tapos ang rebolusyon sa pamamalakad ng diktatoryang dutae.
