“If we want to educate people, giving them an overwrought story such as this one is not the answer. Otherwise, people will stay away in droves.” (Read full review)

“Hampanget. Insulting. Vad. Naawa ako kina Iza Calzado at Rustica Carpio rito dahil kasali sila. Wala rin namang bagong input kung advocacy film lang ang tema. And why mock the documentary filmmaking? Sana gumawa na lang talaga sila ng docu at nag-interview ng mga tao.”
