    please, remember this night


    If you're a fan of Wong Kar Wai, this is a must-watch for you. It's a short film made for night wanderers searching for their purpose, cigarettes of "ours" that have never been yours, and daydreaming in conversation with strangers.

    People come and go, and at some point in our lives, we hope that there will be someone who doesn't get that last ride and walks you home. Someone who isn’t in a rush. Someone who is sure of you. And someone who would take time to know each corner of your soul.

    "please, remember this night” wasn't perfect, but I'm glad that it exists.

    I cried a river when I read the book. I set my expectations low since it's a film. Though I wished I could turn back time on how the lines from the film pierced my weary heart and intertwined with the monologues from the film, they were sad but beautifully written.

    Finch gave justice to how people with suicidal ideation act and behave. I admire how the story was straightforward but didn't forget to discuss how mental health should be…

    The Notebook


    To write unsent letters for 365 days and restore a house for a woman he can't stand were far worse things I could never imagine.

    The story was too mid-tempo for me—a cliche love story that two famous stars tried to save. I would give it a plus because it tackled Alzheimer's disease and how it affects relationships.

    The film wasn't good enough, but how the story was delivered was far worse.

    It's a devastating way to end things through polaroids and promises laid upon frames on walls.

    Maybe that's the cruelest thing that the world could offer; it will crumble our hearts into pieces as we move forward with the past romance that life has taken away from us, and freeze these memories through photographs.

    I was left hanging by the thought of how painful it was to be forgotten by the person you loved when all you did was remember.

    Past Lives


    Past Lives is packed with scenes that will make you embrace the art of yearning. I love how the story was fast-paced but didn’t forget the little details. The monologues were already laid out in the eyes and body gestures of the characters.

    One thing that the film taught me is that we bombard ourselves with "what ifs" and "could have beens" and blame fate for the love we used to have, and we choose to let go.

    Sometimes, it…

    Iba ang dulot ng pelikulang ‘to sa ‘kin. Nakaka-miss ang elyu, bagnet, yung takip-silim. Sana makapag-graduate na rin tayo; sa kolehiyo, sa mga sitwasyon na hindi natin nais balikan, at sa taong hindi kayang suklian ang pag-ibig na handa nating ipadama. Tangina mo, Dio.
