    I read the review of the documentary in the S.F. Chronicle a couple of days ago. I remember thinking it’s like a celluloid version of your “The Wit and Wisdom of Imelda Marcos”!

    2005 eh? Sayang. The next few weeks would’ve been perfect to show it here in the Philippines. At the very least it’ll spark discussion and serve as a reminder that we had to kick these people out of the country.

    EXACTLY my sentiments. i think that leaving it ultimately up to the viewer to ‘choose’ for themselves whether imelda’s cool or not is dangerous.yes- i would have preferred shaking of the fists myself. i give props to the director for that trust in us.
