City After Dark Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

This film was originally titled [[Feature~V77975~Manila by Night~sororityhousemassacre2:nightynightmare]] 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
