Philippine Movies in 2001: The Film Industry Is Dead! Long Live Philippine Cinema!
Abstract:The Philippine movie industry has been reported dying for several decades now. It was reported dead in the 1960s with the advent of fly-by-night companies and the proliferation of sex movies called bomba in 1970. It died again, according to reports, in the 1990s with the reincarnation of bomba into bold movies and the rising competition of humongous Hollywood high-concept movies.
