City After Dark Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

This film was originally titled until, it is rumored, Imelda Marcos asked that the title be changed so as not to specifically malign "her city." The action in the film takes place in Manila, and involves various protagonists -- including the city itself -- in the lowest of human entrapments: drugs and vice. Homosexual sequences highlight an alternative lifestyle, and as the nightlife functions as an alter-ego for the busy, daytime streets. At the time of this movie's release, many Filipino viewers felt that this was one of the best movies their nation had produced. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
