    Saan kayang mga film festivals sa mundo maiimbitahan ang Sisterakas at Enteng Kabisote? Based sa nabalitaan ko, si Direk Brillante daw mismo ang nahihirapan pumili ng tatanggapin nilang invitation kasi nga kabi-kabila daw ang invitations ng Thy Womb lalo na sa America. Yung iba daw kasi nag-o-overlap. Now, sino ang nakakahiya? Ang Thy Womb na nangulelat sa sarili niyang bansa ngunit patuloy na inaanyayahan sa iba’t-ibang bansa? O ang mga masang Filipino na pinili ang mga basurang tulad ng Sisterakas at Enteng Kabisote?

    It must be a great film….The Filipinos had been bombarded with bad films with great laughter BUT it doesn’t help to educate the young people Oh wait I guess it does in some ways, we love to support garbage…
