This is a film set in contemporary times with a deep connection to Filipino culture and folklore of the older times. Add in themes of politics, religion, colonialism, sexuality, and gender and you have this film. This is going to be a film that people will study in Asian American Film Studies classes in the future and talk endlessly about the Asian American existence in the modern American Western world. INSTANT CLASSIC. For all others who just want to be entertained this movie moves fast with lots of monsters and mythical characters challenging the journey of the main characters and their opponents of progress towards a better world of acceptance by mainstream thought.
