About the Film

Review: Enticing And Memorable Sundance Winner ‘Metro Manila’

If you’re not into niche genre stuff like indie slasher films, Asian action flicks and ridiculously over-the-top monster movies then it’s likely that you haven’t even heard of the Fantasia Film Festival. For close to three full weeks this international festival descends upon the city of Montreal like a tidal wave of cinematic weirdness.
