Retirada (Cinemalaya 2022)

Directed by: Milo Alto Paz / Cynthia Cruz-Paz

A Retiree gets addicted to Bingo.

The introduction is hurried.

The storytelling is uninspiring.

The treatment is dry.

There’s no resolution.

They skipped the climax.

All the needed topics are not discussed. The pension, the life crisis, the new purpose, the adjustment, the passion — These words are just part of a one-liner sentence.

Too many big opportunities are missed,

because they didn’t know how to tell a story.

This movie is lucky to have a reliable cast in the presence of Peewee O’Hara, Jerry O’Hara, Donna Cariaga and Dexter Doria.

But it’s unfortunate

that this film is unreliable.
