FILIPINO film buff Jonathan Catunao might not be your popular critic or Hollywood observer from a Third World poor country perspective but his reminders are no nonsense and sharp they could pass for rigid standards like Aristotle’s Poetics in film evaluation to the foreign language film nomination of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science (AMPAS) which manages the annual Oscar Awards.


Catunao’s parameters in sending foreign films to Oscars seem to be footnotes of incisiveness and omniscient benchmarks from many years of objective and vicarious assessment from an outsider’s ardently Oscar-watching experiences perhaps culled from personal encounters with voters of the Academy, intensive and extensive research, interviews, surveys and pulse reading of Hollywood manner of unique choices.

Notably, he speaks with familiarity with Philippine cinema history of representation to AMPAS. #OpinYon #ePlus #Oscar
