Go out and form a band: A Rakenrol post

Last Sept 25,2011 My friends and I watched RAKENROL. We waited for its showing for a long time. All of us became excited to watch it.


It is about Odie and his friend Irene who decided to form a band out of nowhere. It maybe about friendship, trials and also about love. It is quirky and a fun movie to watch.

Everytime we saw scenes from gigs and bands, we have a “wow face.” It seems that  the entire movie is made for those like us who are bonded by our love for Music, for indie bands and for OPM. I don’t know but I think it really is a good movie to watch. But you will really appreciate it if you are an OPM/ indie band fan.

We were lucky to see Rivermaya’s bassist, Japs.

RAKENROL: 5 thumbs up

Odie and his best friend Irene are two outsiders who find a second home in the Philippine underground music scene. The two decide to form a band and put together an unlikely crew that consists of the school bully, an ex-punk-turned-barista, and a former-childstar-turned-band-manager. The film follows their misadventures as they face satanic S&M bands, samurai swindlers, narcissistic rockstars, the pretentious Philippine art community and the freakiest music video auteur ever. Co-written by Diego Castillo, the guitarist of one of the Philippines’ biggest rock bands SANDWICH, and directed by multi-awarded music video director Quark Henares, Rakenrol is a heartfelt ode to the underground scene both filmmakers spent their formative years in.
