Hello again Fellows!
Two Saturdays ago, I made a walk in the memory lane of the Philippine movie classics and watched in full length Oro, Plata, Mata (Gold, Silver Death).
Though I missed a 10 minuter part (since a repeated scene has been put on the part where the next scene is supposed to be seen), what I watched is enough. I was surprised finding the movie available in youtube.com to be watched for free.
As a former communications student, dealing a lot with films, I've been tied to watching film classics. I tried to find this film over the pirated DVD market in Quiapo but failed to have a copy of it.
I even became bolder and being willing to pay a little extra amount to buy it. I tried to search for it in several legitimate video stores of VIVA (the production outfit), but failed to find a copy.
After years of looking for this 80's masterpiece of Peque Gallaga, I was ecstatic to find it available online.
I've been moved by scene after scene of this. As a person addicted on the Philippine bygone era, when Spanish was still a popular tongue then, I had my eyes and ears dedicated while watching the film.
There is a scene there that really moved me and made me think, are we as human beings able to do such savagery?
Look at what happened recently in Maguindanao. What are we?
