1. dref22:Lino Brocka


I’ll be watching this gem soon. Because:
Based on a true story, the film frank depiction of homosexuality, prostitution, drag queens and crooked cops, porno movie-making and sexual slavery, and drugs and violence caused the Filipino government censors to order extensive edits of the film, forcing an uncensored edition to be smuggled out of the Philippines and shown to a limited number of international film festivals. This print is now part of the permanent collection at The Museum of Modern Art in New York 
I am intrigued.


Official trailer
Full version (no subs)
Macho Dancer Director: Lino Brocka Cast: Allan Paule (Pol), Daniel Fernando (Noel) Philippines | 1988 | 136 min Pol, a handsome teenager from the mountains, abandoned by his American lover, journeys to Manila in an effort to support his family. With Noel, a popular call boy, as his mentor, Pol enters the glittering world of male strippers, prostitution, drugs, sexual slavery, police corruption and murder. Teeming with sex and Asian beefcake, Macho Dancer is a seering indictment of the hypocrisy and police corruption rampant under both the Marcos and Aquino regimes.
