Top 11 Filipino Movies of All Time

As with 2014, a bulk of the Filipino films worth watching came from the annual film festivals that give grants to filmmakers. From the first edition of Sinag Maynila, audiences were offered a wild experiment in time and space in Remton Zuasola’s Swap, and a simple parable that is well told in Zig Dulay’s Bambanti. From QCinema International Film Festival, there is Lem Lorca’s Water Lemon, a somber examination of rural boredom, and Chuck Gutierrez’s Iisa, a daring look into the lives of leftists at the time of tragedy. From Cinema One Originals, there is Ara Chawdhury’s Miss Bulalacao, an offbeat tale of a gay man who miraculously got pregnant. From the New Wave section of the Metro Manila Film Festival, there is King Palisoc’s Tandem, a well-crafted crime thriller. Here is the list by Insidermonkey experts on top 11 Filipino movies of all time.

Interestingly, the bigger film studios, infused with a renewed openness for innovation, perhaps as a result of the success of Antoinette Jadaone’s That Thing Called Tadhana (2014), came up with films that manage to mix commercial intentions with some semblance of inventiveness. Cathy Garcia-Molina’s A Second Chance, the sequel to 2007 hit One More Chance, temporarily eschews romantic fantasies to showcase the harsh realities of married life. Finally, there are the films that are produced outside any of the established systems.
