Movie Review: John Denver Trending

John Denver Trending was my first Cinemalaya film - unless there's one that I'm not aware of - and while it had some strong and outstanding moments, I left slightly underwhelmed.

The message was clear and I understood the overall intent, but there were moments that took me out of the narrative. Most of it from the sloppy acting of the secondary cast. I mean, Meryl Soriano was an obvious standout and Jansen Magpusao had his moments albeit inconsistent - he just lacked a certain degree of depth in scenes where it mattered for his character - while the rest was just plain awkward. Also, it's probably just me, but that running scene in the field towards the end gave me some major headache. Haha.

John Denver Trending was a a truly heartbreaking film that could've been a lot more powerful with a more consistent and convincing cast. The rawness may have been why people loved the movie, but that rawness also kept me at an emotional arm's length.
