DVD: Squatterpunk

by Lewis Manalo

Yet another “Not a Film” by Filipino indie auteur Khavn hits American shores. A feature that made the rounds through a ton of international film festivals last year, Splatterpunk follows an eight-year-old wannabe gangster through the slums of Manila. There’s no dialog, just some titlecards and some relentless punk rock.

Poetic social realism? Fun? Exploitation? Annoying? This is one you’ll either love or hate, so you’ll have to see if for yourself.
