Kinatay [Butchered] (2009) Controversial Filipino Movie
Kinatay [Butchered] (2009) Controversial Filipino Movie

"Disturbing, Bold, Provocative ... Bravo!"
--Quentin Tarantino

Original Filipino title KINATAY [Butchered]
also known as THE EXECUTION OF P and CHOP CHOP

director: Brillante Mendoza
Coco Martin Maria Isabel Lopez Julio Diaz John Regala Jhong Hilario Lauren Novero

A young man tries to make some money so he can marry his girlfriend. He takes a job for $2,000 and then soon realizes that it involves killing a woman. Essentially, this is an intimate look at how a person feels and acts when confronted with unsuspecting horror. While there are obvious 'shocks' in this Award winning Filipino movie (i.e., Best Director at Cannes 2010 Film Festival), this is not a horror film in the strictest sense. The real horror here is 'awareness' of everyday reality, that is... the terrible things humans do to each other.

When this film made its debut at Cannes in 2010, Quentin Tarantino was one of the festival judges. As Quentin presented the best Director award to Brillante Mendoza, he said: "You've done a remarkable job here. I really felt like the eyewitness to a horrible murder. I became everything I saw." On the other side of the coin, critic Roger Ebert wrote: "Kinatay is the worst film ever screened in Cannes." He added that he "wanted to apologize to Vince Gallo for saying the same thing about his BROWN BUNNY."
