Four Movies

Since the downtown Century 20 re-opened, self has seen four movies. The largest audience — 10 people — was for The New Mutants. The smallest — two people — for Yellow Rose. Here are the four, ranked:

  • Tenet
  • The New Mutants
  • Yellow Rose
  • Infidel

It is a real, real pleasure to see movies on a wide-screen. Self will keep going, as long as the Century 20 is open.

YELLOW ROSE: Luminous Acting

Self cannot even begin to tell you how wonderful it was to watch the changing expressions on the face of the movie’s lead, Eva Noblezada (24 playing almost 18 — she pulls it off). And to see that most iconic of Filipino characters — the long-suffering mother — acted with such conviction by Princess Punzalan! Plus, the love story is soooo sweet. Shy glances, low-key companionship. Sold!

The director was Diane Paragas, who also wrote the screenplay, from a story by Andy Bienen.

When she gave her ticket to the ticket guy, he looked down at the ticket and, as he handed it back to self, said, “Good movie.”

See, this is what self loves so much about Century 20: it’s more like a neighborhood movie theater than a multi-plex. The staff here were the ones who told her to see Jojo Rabbit, when she was trying to decide which of the 12 movies showing she should see. What other multi-plex would have staff recommending an indie movie. She rests her case.
