I dump some more drawing stuff there.
I never knew how badass our heroes are!
It’s thanks to the film I watched yesterday – “Heneral Luna” that I’m able to see Antonio Luna in a different light. He was the fiery commander of the Philippine Revolutionary Army during the time of the American occupation and shamefully I only knew him vaguely during grade school.
I applaud the creators of this movie. I hate to admit it, but I’m not a big fan of local made movies. Most lack real substance. But not this one.
The problems presented in this movie are the same things we’re facing now. We lack unity. We quarrel among ourselves. We let the real issues slip under our noses. We place our own livelihood and survival above our freedom and love for the country. We are plagued by weak leaders.
And Luna, in this movie, is the mad spirit who forces us to see all of these problems. Never has a local film done that. To hit the viewer’s where it hurts most.
So here’s my little tribute to Heneral Luna. Mabuhay ang Sineng Pilipino.
