here’s what commenter charlie roces has been writing on my blog:

“It’s good Raya Martin, Lav Diaz,etc. are not bent on copying Brocka. Mendoza should think original & not rely on the Brocka relics like Lao… Well, Mendoza should stop copying Brocka if he wants to be respected like Raya or Lav in the world…A wake-up call to the relics of Brocka, di na uso drama niyo… kaya Brillante Mendoza & the rest (Jeturian din),should start being original & be done with the pa-Brocka epek. ”

here’s some news for you, charlie:
