I Love "Working Girls"!

Okay, so I haven't watched the full movie yet but the trailer is so enticing!

I love Eugene Domingo as an actor, she's the one who delivered the line "I will stand up for it". Reading some of her past interviews before, I learned that Eugene Domingo has a degree in Theater Arts from University of the Philippines. I've watched "Kimmy Dora" before and her acting is oozing with energy whichever character she plays. As Kimmy, I really felt the tension and stress while Dora releases that stress from me. Haha! This year is a good year for Eugene Domingo actually, she has a lot of shows in GMA, one of the leading TV network in the Philippnes, plus great movies churning out.

Another thing that caught my eye is Bianca King. I can really really feel for Bianca King's character as a segment producer. Believe me, being told you're a crap, your concepts are a bloody bore, you yourself is a bloody bore etc. did made me a better Communication Arts student. but I'm still a human and I do get hurt and tired of hearing the same insults over and over again for the past 3 years, I'm just glad I was spared getting my work thrown at my face! Haha! However, that doesn't stop me from doing online publishing! <3

"Working Girls" is directed by Direk Jose Javier Reyes, I believe he had a Communication Arts teaching stint in De La Salle University before along with the Sir Doy del Mundo Jr. I love Sir Doy, at first I thought wow he must be a superstar, he wrote the screenplay for great Filipino films like "Maynila... Sa Kuko ng Liwanag", "Markova: Comfort Gay" etc. etc. but it turned out he was very approachable and down to earth. Sometimes me and my friends call him Papa Doy because he is like the father figure in Communications Department. Sir Doy is loving but I didn't say he's not a terror. He could be loving but he is strict (still a relatively mild term) but believe me, he's gonna make you a better person, hone your skills and improve your work ethics. Direk Joey or Jose Javier Reyes is also a great filmmaker, he does mainstream films like "Working Girls" and yet he also creates indie films.

"Working Girls" is actually the third remake from the 1984 film with the same title and it was directed by another great Filipino filmmaker Ishmael Bernal. Later on "Working Girls 2" was done in 1987 also directed by Ishmael Bernal. I haven't viewed the first and second film but clips are included in the trailer above.

I think I'm gonna enjoy "Working Girls"! ^.^
