Coco Martin: Serbis

One of the most promising young-sexy actors of this generation, Coco Martin was such a delight to watch in "Masahista" (The Masseur) in 2005 where he won 'Best Performance by Male or Female, Adult or Child, Individual or Ensemble in Leading or Supporting Role' from YCC.

He has come a long way since his appearance as (Russel C. Mon)Ivan's friend in "Luv Text" (2001) where he was known then as Rodel Nacianceno.

His other film credits include "Daybreak", "Condo", "Batanes", "Tambolista", "Nars", Pi7ong Tagpo", "Ataul For Rent", Siquijor", just to name a few.

One of his latest films is "Serbis", the Philippines' official entry to the Cannes Film Festival. I saw the movie at the Gateway cinema and obviously it had cuts which Pinoys are not allowed to view in public venues. Personally I did not like the film because of the crazy shots which put me to sleep for a few minutes or so and almost bored me to death exploring the dilapitated theater house. However, the storyline was very strong and daring, they obviously had a very good (brilliant) script. My favorite scene in the movie's when Jaclyn Jose was looking up and smiling at Kristofer King and Jaclyn dropped the plate she was holding when she realized that her husband (Julio Diaz) was standing right in front of her. There were times I could not 'hear' the dialogues because of too much ambient noise which they did on purpose. But all in all the movie was great, especially the sex scenes (did the gay guy really put King's in his mouth or was that just good blocking?).
