Pervision Podcast #6: “Clarita”, “Banal”, “Quezon’s Game”, and more
The one where Geoff and the word “floss” became mortal enemies.
Season 1, Episode 6
"Clarita" / "Banal" / "Quezon's Game" / "Toy Story 4"
Episode Six is up, you guys! This week, we’re shaking up things a little bit by adding a Hollywood movie to the mix.
We’re also trying out what we’ll call Quick Takes, shorter reviews that will let us get through even more movies in the pod. Each week we’ll also have a Featured Review, which is a lengthier and a more in-depth talk around a specific movie.
This week, we’re discussing three new Filipino movies—all three are interestingly based on or inspired by real-life events. JA Tadena’s “Banal” and Matthew Rosen’s “Quezon’s Game” are both parts of this week’s Quick Takes. Derick Cabrido’s “Clarita”, meanwhile, is our Featured Review.
This week, we discuss Derick Cabrido’s new movie, “Clarita”. The new movie stars Jodi Sta. Maria, Aaron Villaflor, and Ricky Davao. The film tells the real-life story of Clarita Villanueva, a young Filipina whose demonic possession became infamous in the late 50’s.
This week’s Quick Takes include JA Tadena’s supernatural thriller “Banal”, Matthew Rosen’s historical drama “Quezon’s Game”, and Josh Cooley’s four-quel “Toy Story 4”.
