As of this writing, I haven’t watched some local Filipino films that might be part of the list like Lav Diaz’s critically lauded Norte, End of History and Raya Martin’s How to Disappear Completely. I also missed Mes de Guzman’s Steel is the Earth during its run at Cinema Rehiyon Reloaded last August 2013.

Some notable films I’ve seen this year include Joshell Montañano’s unreleased experimental film Alipin ng Sining (Art Slave, 2013) somewhat reminiscent of the avant-garde Fluxfilms. I also like Jerrold Tarog’s Sana Dati (If Only, 2013), Hannah Espia’s Transit and Jet Leyco’s audacious, multilayered political film Bukas na lang sapagat gabi na (Leave It For Tomorrow For the Night Has Fallen, 2013).
