      The New Yorkers had their chance; now it's Toronto's turn.

      Haven't seen this but Lav Diaz's previous 5-hour "Batang West Side"
      (West Side Avenue) was a pretty good film, one of the best from the
      Philippines in recent years.

      That one ended up on a few 'ten best never-seen films of the year
      lists' in 2002.

      His "Hesus Rebolusyonaryo," set 11 years into the future, was an I
      think excellent dystopian SF satire, an almost unheard-of genre in
      Philippine cinema.

      He's certainly one of the most imaginative Filipino filmmakers
      around.
