JUAN SAYS: Just when the final word of Mercedes Cabral was supposed to nail the issue on the MMFF, in comes Ricky Lo and his man to man defense on Mother Lily. Did Mercedes Cabral go overboard calling Mother Lily a “fucking idiot?” Let’s put this in an emotionless perspective.

If you look beneath Mother Lily’s “expression of sadness” as pointed out by Mr. Lo, one thing is clear, it is not about sadness. It is about frustration. Imagine, MMFF entries from way back rake in hundreds of millions during Christmas time because it is the ONLY money-making film festival in the country where bankability was the premium qualification for getting in the Magic 8. No idiot will be sad about losing millions. If anything, they will be devastated, angry to a point. Just when they expected a big turn out for their entries for 2016, the kind that would’ve gotten the nod of the MMFF screening committee in the past, everything made a pretty bad turn.

Saan? Saan na ngayon kukuha ng pambayad sa lahat ng artista at production crew na binayaran ng doble para lamang gawin ang pelikulang tanging “tawa” lamang ang bitbit sa sinehan. Minsan corny pa.

Paano? Paano makakabawi sa napakalaking nilabas na puhunan dahil sure win naman sana ang kitaan sa MMFF ngunit nasuheto na ng bagong pamunuan ng nasabing patimpalak sa pelikula.

And the fucking idiot who said that Mother Lily deserves more respect than being called “a fucking idiot” doesn’t know respect at all. Respect is regardless of stature of accolades, of awards, of accomplishments. Respect is earned by the kind of life we live, the manner that which we conduct business, and how we treat other people who are defensless to our tirades. And truth be told, with the revelations of Mercedes Cabral, maybe there will be people in the industry who will have no respect for the woman. And to call her a fucking idiot is just too much? Not paying what is due your production crew, actors and the like IS RESPECTABLE? We rest our case on the fucking idiots of this industry.
