    Gorgeously shot and delivered a strong and clear message (although why did I feel worse over seeing the massacre of animals vs the brutal human deaths?), but to quote Ate Vi in Everything About Her, "Ang bagaaaaaaaaal!!".

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Ooh, Wong Kar-wai aesthetics set to a hipster soundtrack! Most visually-pleasing (that labia majora wings reveal was awesome!) among the three Prime Cruz films, but also my least favorite.

    There wasn't enough story to latch on to that I kept wondering if the chicken oil (?) she used to rub on her burning loins was stolen from Mang Inasal. I'm all for an interspecies love story so it was unfortunate that the movie ended just when it was actually getting better.

    My notes on Hello, Love, Goodbye:

    1. Naalala ko nung nagpunta ako ng Hong Kong around 2014, napadaan ako sa Central area isang Linggo at nagulat ako sa dami ng mga OFWs (mostly women) na nasa gilid-gilid mula sa overpass malapit sa train station hanggang sa mismong kalye na ang isang parte ay ipinasara para tayuan ng makeshift stage (“Beauty and the Best” ang theme ng show slash pageant noon).

    Parang isang mahabang row ng mga nagpi-picnic ang itsura nila…
