MOVIE REVIEW: TÍA MADRÉ (Eve Baswel, 2019)

3F6C0ABA-A6EB-47A9-AD07-E441DDD40C7A

Mukhang ganito kapag nasobrahan ng panonood ng mga pelikula ni Ari Aster.

Redundant na nga dapat yung “Cherie Gil” at “horror” eh kasi kulang na lang maihi ako sa salawal sa titig lang niya (lalo na kapag may hawak siya na wine glass) kaso waley talaga.

Gusto ko maging kasinglakas ng batang babae dito. Hindi ko natutunan ang ganung knot nung Boy Scouts days ko infer. At pasalamat nanay ko puro Liwayway lang binabasa ko dati.

Rating: ★★☆☆☆
