Because it would've been a monumental waste of perfectly good film otherwise. Hugot, the film I mentioned before, has got to be the crappiest movie I've seen this year (and maybe even for the past three years). Just like McVie, I did not get it at all. I'd really like to know who got it; the Bakla Reviewer has seemingly figured it out, but he himself is not sure.
I've read of movie reviews from Americans saying that they walked out of the theater after seeing the first few scenes of some movie and I thought that such practice of walking out was a waste. Well, for the first time, I felt like walking out myself after being assaulted on the senses by the utterly weird initial "dream scenes" in Hugot involving two brief-clad guys probably thinking, "What the fuck am I doing in this film?" and the directors and editors behind the scenes saying, "I can haz Adobe Premiere [or Apple iMovie] effectz!"
If you missed the theatrical screening of Hugot in Robinsons, be thankful you missed it. That's 140 pesos saved. Then again, the only reason to watch this crap is as an example to film students on how not to make an indie movie. Of course, if you're a fan of crappy campy movies, then let this Hugot movie review be your viewing guide.
