Ten most important Filipino gay films of the decade
The The Bakla Review (“Bakla” is Filipino for “gay”) has a list of the ten most important gay films from the Philippines: “The Pinoy gay film exploded in number and diversity in the last ten years, that it seemed necessary to identify the landmarks — in chronological order, to see how we got from there to here. So this is not a list of the biggest critical darlings (Jay and Selda are not here), nor my personal guilty pleasures (Otherwise, there’ll be Boylets) — though they can be those, too. I simply asked: Can I imagine the decade in Philippine gay culture without these films? Or, Can I imagine moving into the future without having passed through them?
