“…and seemingly conspirators with Ong and Bautista in what could either be a well-orchestrated prank or a product of tilted genius.”
I really wished I’ve seen the movie on its private screening. I really wish there’s a chance for me to actually see it.
Here’s an engaging, witty and insightful review by my friend Wincy Ong. I actually remember our conversations about music and art, making music and art and the struggle behind it. Here are my favorite parts:
“Perhaps Henares’ picture of a true musician is Odyssey, the humble guy who writes songs in his bedroom; the guy in t-shirt and jeans,with a slight beer paunch; the rockstar with a day job.”
“Perhaps the icing is more enjoyable than the cake. And so what? The strictures of narrative can be boring anyway. Perhaps Rakenrol should be as plotless as real life itself. Or pointless as rock n’ roll itself.”
And even in his review, I can see how can always zoom in to the details and zoom out for a bigger picture. I like how he did not over think, over analyzed.
