Murder On The Silver Screen!

Got this one off Adobo, this is one movie any aspiring director/film maker should see!

About the film
“Kinatay” (Butchered) follows the story of a young criminologist in dire need of money to pay for his upcoming wedding. Accepting a job that will earn him $2,000 for a night, he realizes too late, the task involves torturing and killing a young prostitute.

About the director
After a long career as a production designer, Brillante Mendoza directed his first film, "Masahista", in 2005. He has since produced and directed eight films, all of which have been exhibited and lauded in film festivals the world over. In June 2009, his work on the controversial "Kinatay" compelled the prestigious Cannes Film Festival jury to name him Best Director, making him the first Filipino to ever receive the honor.
