Summary: At Easter, a group of pickpockets holds sway in Manila's poor neighbourhoods. This microcosm functions within the underground economy of prostitution and drugs. A word out of place can spark off a bloody battle. And of course, the police is the principal enemy. Brillante Mendoza's second film, Tirador, confirms his talent. Filmed live with a hand-held camera and full of rage, the film is shot at a hectic pace and without any frills. When the police are chasing the gangsters, we're inevitably on the gangsters' side. Far from glorifying the violence and those who incarnate it, Brillante Mendoza seeks to highlight a festering social wound and open the debate on a dramatic situation. Prophetic, he witnesses to this fury that is all the more important because it exists in all the world's big cities. Tirador is a brutal descent into hell, where men turn on each other like wolves. Not for all eyes
