MOVIE REVIEW | Stonewall (2015)




I liked the film, although medyo loose ang narrative. It was like trying to force the audience to like it... too many themes mashed up in two hours.

Please watch ‪#‎PriscillaOfTheDesert‬ & ‪#‎BrokeBackMountain‬
Parang nag fuse yung 2 movies na to sa ‪#‎Stonewall‬....
It could have been a better film kung nag focus yung story sa isang central theme...

The end where the father did not accept Danny as his son, was (IMO) a pivotal point in the film that makes a statement- "We don't have to force ourselves to people who don't like us."

And the conflicts are just too predictable... the melodramatic part with Danny & Ray didn't work very much as it should have been. Pero yung kay Trevor & Danny, was also a tragic theme which could have been played better pero was disregarded in the end. I'll give it 6 out of 10 rating.

Note: Watch ‪#‎TheDanishGirl‬ & ‪#‎AlbertNobbs‬, so you see the reference for critquing Stonewall
