If you look up "Wild, crazy, weird Filipino cinema" in the encyclopaedia it has a picture of this film next to it. I swear! I don't even know how to describe this film. And don't be fooled by the fact that it has a fucken kid in the lead role. It's not a kid's movie. Anyhoo, I'm not going to review the film for now but I highly recommend that you check out Andrew Leavold's post about the film. He knows his shit about this! And if you don't believe me here's a photo of him and Nino Muhlach who played the main character in STONE BOY.
