‘Patay na si Hesus’ offers madcap humor that never veers to stereotypes (Interaksyon)

Probably the funniest Filipino movie I’ve seen, Patay na si Hesus is a hilarious romp from Cebu to Dumaguete with an eccentric family filled with issues that are real but handled with such a masterful touch by director Victor Villanueva that what is tragic has become comic. It’s a really well-made film and I’m so happy to have gotten to see it.

Read my review here: “Patay na si Hesus” offers madcap humor that never veers to stereotypes (InterAksyon).


Chai Fonacier, Vincent Viado, Jaclyn Jose, Sheen Gener, and Melde Montanez are all hilariously funny in Patay na si Hesus

The film is in Cebuano, which I think is a great choice (it was originally written in Filipino). The acting is amazing. The humor is both high-brow and low-brow but it never panders. That is so difficult to do but it did it so well.

I heard the other films are great too, like Salvage and Birdshot, which I want to see. I also want to see Mananangal sa Apartment 2B. This looks like its going to be a great festival and I’m so happy about the turnout for the Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino.
