the boy's culture

Friday night was fun, eventhough I was so pissed before going out with my friends.

When I reached the club, I was a bit early because there weren't enough people yet. Met up with friends and then the party started.

Hang out, had a few drinks up to the point where I had to lean on my friends just so I could stand up straight. Medyo na-hotseat nanaman ako dahil sa friends ko. Pero ok lang, sanayan lang. hehe

I met someone new. Akalain mong may nakipagkilala pa sa hitsura kong 'to. haha Pero ok naman siya. Regular clubber din kaya magkikita pa din kami pagbalik ko dun next week.

I went home around 6am dahil nag-invite pa ung friends na magbreakfast kina Aling Su (Na masarap ang tapsilog, btw) at natulog pagdating sa bahay. Woke up at 12pm with a heavy ball inside my head.

At akala ko bahay lang ako buong araw ng Sabado, niyaya naman din ako manuod ng sine ni Ryan at as usual, nasense ko ang drama nia sa buhay. Kaya kahit na tinatamad ako, sumama na lang ako at nakibonding kay Ryan at, after ng movie, kay Jano na nasa cubao para magreview. Umuwe na medyo malakas ang ulan pagdating ng Nlex pero ayos lang dahil pauwe na din naman ako. May dalang pasalubong sa bahay.

Okay naman ung movie. Boy Culture. One of the indie films featured and shown in Robinson's Malls. It's about "a successful male escort's (X) tangled romantic relationship with his two roommates (Joey and Andrew) and an older, enigmatic male client.' (click here for details)

A film by Q. Allan Brocka, based from the novel of the same title written by matthew Rettenmund, I enjoyed the story and how the actor played his role. Lalo na ung complications ng relationship niya between his two roomates. The other one likes him while the other one loves him (whom he also secretly adores).

Weird lang ung isang scene where he had to have sex with one of his clients whom he has established a close relationship with. Medyo may edad na kasi ung client niya na un kaya it was so awkward for me seeing them having sex.


I saw myself in one of the characters (Andrew); although I can't explain why.

What I enjoyed about this film was that it wasn't just about their sexuality. It was about taking risks and standing by it. It's about decisions and accepting changes in your life.

I suggest watching the film. You won't regret it.

Nuod daw kami bukas ng Indiana Jones sabi ni Mama. Sino ba naman ako para tumanggi sa libre diba? hehe

isa lang yung comment ko about homoerotic films. aren't they advocating it through movies like that? hindi ako anti-gay pero hindi rin tama siguro i-advocate. i understand na commercially-produced yang movie na yan. sana they would have it released in a more discreet manner (through GLBT festivals siguro).

JM said...

wanderingcommuter: hehe d naman mciadong mabilis ang pagbabago ng isip? :)

curbside_puppet: I think they released it already outside the country in GLBT festivals. Tsaka ung sa Robinson's d naman cia commercially done kasi part cia ng Indie Sine festival of some sort ng Robinsons. 2 lang ata per month ang naffeature na indie films like this one :)
