From the faraway planet of the Philippines

I would watch the shit out of this.

Though I've never been there, I love the Philippines. Amazingly, the kind of cheapo Cirio Santiago/Eddie Romero/Gerry DeLeon movies we all love so much are big budget compared to the films that aren't intended for export. There's a great blog called Video 48 that reproduces ad-mats and goes deeply into the indigenous film culture of the '60s, '70s and '80s with asides about comics, true crime and culture. Check it out. It's kind of the Fili Reel Distraction.
