Discreetly

That’s the title to the new movie by Cris Pablo under the Queeriosity Video Project. Discreetly stars bikini open vet and part-time indie actor Ivan Maxwell [in photo]. Here’s the PR: Maxwell plays Cris, a man who lives and loves, just like everyone else, but in the closet. He has always been under the impression that his mom is ignorant about his being gay, until his mom finds out about it way before he intended to admit it. Witness Cris’s struggle in living a restricted life and his endeavor to come out of the closet. Discreetly opens on 14 April 2010 in selected theaters. Mark the calendars, guys! TGIF!

  4. wag iboto si noynoy. pareho siya ng nanay nya na ipokrita nanay nya na wala namang ginawa nung presidente sya, at nagbulagbulagan sa mga namatay na manggagawa sa luisita. tapos eto pa, humingi pa ng tawad kay erap na corrupt, at si noynoy ngayon, hiningi ang suporta ni danding na corrupt din. asahan nyo pag presidente yan, lalong yayaman ang danding na yan syempre. ang ayaw ko kay noynoy, nagmamalinis e ang pamilya naman nila pasimple rin mang api ng mga workers. ikumpara nyo ang workers ng luisita sa mga workers ni villar, sino ang mas kawawa? mas mahusay magtrato ng mangagawa si villar kesa kay noynoy na yan na akala mo kung sinong malinis e anti poor naman. tanga pa, at sure ako mas maghihirap ang pilipinas pag yan ang presidente. yung mga ads nya e wala syang ma mention man lang na ginawa na nya, at puro pangako lang. ako e happy kung sinuman kina villar, gibo, at gordon ang maging presidente, wag lang si noynoy at si erap. pwe!

  5. parang magandang i-photo shop ang mukha ni Manny Villar sa picture na ito.

    “Nakasubok ka na ba magpakita ng itlog?”

  6. Off topic pero at least di pulitika…

    Pinatuloy na pala ni Harry Laurel ang pagiging seaman. Sumakay na siya ng barco nung December 2009.

  7. Off topic uli. Di pa rin tungkol sa pulitika.

    Si Jeff Surio kasama na ni Johnron Tanada dun sa disco sa Macau.

  8. Uy! Another art film from Cris Pablo! Wow! Indie filmmaking at its finest. The paragon of sophistication and integrity in story-telling. His work elevates digital filmmaking into an art form higher than all the allied arts combined.

    Echos.

  9. cris pablo? again? sawang sawa na ako sa mga basura na ginagawa nya. At yung pix walang ginawang hustisya para kay Ivan. YUCK!

  10. sige mag ngongoy abnoy kau, at naza the buzz palagi yan at ipapakita ni kris ang pagpabotox. haha

    villar kami!

  11. I just copy/pasted this from the blog of Lex Bonife, yung friend ni RD about Cris Pablo. Anyway, kayo na bahala mag comment. Sensya na, hahaba ito kasi buo ko ipi-paste.

    Ako personally, di ko rin gusto mga gawa ni Cris Pablo.

    To Lex Bonife:

    I know that you are a film writer, sometimes bit actor and definitely you are on top in terms of promoting gay themed movies. By the way, I had seen all your movies and I will have to say that if only gay themed movies were done in the same fashion that your tandem with Mr. Altarejos were, I can say that we are indeed making progress.

    Now, for the loaded question. And I am really hoping and expecting that you will not ignore this one. What is your personal opinion of the films/videos that Cris Pablo does? I have seen most, if not all of his videos and I and many of my friends and acquaintances and even those I do not know will say that his films really leave an insult to one’s intelligence.

    Tell me, is that really his intentions on why he directs/co-produces videos under the Queeriosity project?

    Honestly, I go all out in supporting Filipinos who are involved in this advocacy. However, I have yet to meet someone who has genuinely liked a Cris Pablo film aside from having gotten the chance to see naked bodies of young Filipino men who in fact, even if for this criterion alone, his films/videos will still fail miserably because as I have said, it creates such an insult to one’s senses.

    Lex, I am waiting for your honest reply to this. Thank you.

    Hi Johnson,

    Thank you for supporting the Filipino gay film industry. And thank you for watching the movies that I have written.

    And now to your “loaded” question, Cris Pablo, for me, has aesthetics of his own. I enjoyed watching several of his films like “Quick Trip”, “Boylets” and “Bath House”. Although some of his works were not particularly appealing for me. If you find his films intellectually insulting, by all means you may stop watching all his movies. That is your right as a consumer.

    But personally, I will continue to watch his films because I appreciate the way he deconstructs gay relationships and how he pokes fun on our identity and our society through his film language which sometimes borders on absurdity. I like his “devil-may-care” attitude in filmmaking, how he breaks the rules of morality and the glossy standards of filmmaking.

    Like a brave gay man who proudly defies standards of morality, Mr. Pablo’s films openly break the rules of Hollywood gloss and production values.

    I guess, Cris Pablo is just an acquired taste.

    Thank you for writing and please continue to support Filipino gay films.

  12. Yung nagsabing abnoy si Noynoy, si Villar naman mukhang alamang. Masdan mo mukha sa TV, POKER FACE talaga. Gumastos na ng P1B para lang sa kampanya. Aber, paano niya babawiin yan? Alangan namaang ipamigay niya basta-basta ang ISANG BILYONG PISO ng ganun na lang. Mag-isip ka nga, TANGA!

  13. at least si villar, hindi naglalaway nabang nagssasalita. e si noynoy, may laway sa kanang gilagid nya pag nagsasalita. kadiri talaga, tapos kalbo pa rin kahit pinaayos na ni kris na super arte. ano ba yan. palibhasa autistic nga. i wonder kung ano ang gagawin nyan sa malacanang. baka laging in interview ni boy abunda para sa the buzz, kungsabagay dun sya pwede kasi naglalaway nga..

  14. mas pogi at may personality naman si villar kaysa noynoy abnoy at talagang magaling at leader talaga. e sa paglalakad pa lang ni noynoy, wala ka ng tiwala e. para bang madadapa sya pag naglalakad. ano ba yan. tapos tanga pa at walang alam kundi siraan ang mga kalaban, palibhasa wala syang ma mention na ginawa.

    sige nga, noynoy, maglakad ka ulet na parang sakang na madadapa tapos tumutulo ang laway hahaha

  15. tigilan nyo nga yang mga political stupidity comment nyo halatang wala kayong mga pinagaralan get lost mga bayon pwe

  16. Si Villar naman, hindi kumukurap ang mata, parang palaging gising, para bang may tinira. Siguro, iniisip na kung paano bawiin ang P1B na nagastos niya. Hehehe. Matalo sana.

  17. pag c abNOY ang naging presidente..
    c boy abunda ang press secretary
    c kris ang first lady

    aru juice ko, ano ng nangyari sa bayan ko?
