Filipinos are cool. Not only are they widely known as “the party Asians,” they just elected a president named “Noynoy”, which sounds like a charming description of third-world prostitute vagina. Hmm, this seems to be getting a tad un-PC. ANYWAY, after the jump, I’ve got the trailer for Machete Maidens Unleashed a documentary about exploitation cinema in the Phillippines from the guy who did Not Quite Hollywood. The title cards at the beginning basically set the whole thing up for you:
“From the early 70s to the mid 80s, the Phillippines was in the grip of a brutal dictatorship and under martial law. Fighting back was forbidden. Chaos was contained. Indecency was punished. There was no sign of revolution. EXCEPT IN THEIR MOVIES!”
Okay, settle down, Spaz. Luckily, the rest of trailer is nothing but clips from Filipino exploitation movies, and they look amazing. It’s two minutes of nuns with guns, midget secret agents, bare-breasted ladies and snakes, zombies, explosions, and Chuck Norris. This also describes my ideal first date.
There are very brief flashes of nudity sprinkled throughout, so act accordingly.
“Yes, darling, bare your bod.”
Aw, I bet you say that to all he midget secret agents. Now show me your noynoy.
