mooning over ishmael

have been reading up on ishmael bernal‘s filmography, encoding clippings from jorge‘s files of movie reviews and interviews through the years since pagdating sa dulo.  last night when i got to his days as “detergent queen,” then as stage actor (death in the form of a rose — a great review & interview by rolando tinio), and then his last film wating, tinamaan ako ng matinding lungkot, for him, for the film industry, for nation… bumubuwelo now to get back to it :(
