Before some of you mention it, Naked Under The Moon (1999) is not a classical Lav Diaz slow film and it appears strange to add a review to this site, even though the film doesn't correspond to my take of Slow Cinema. But I find the film decisive in Diaz's development towards the filmmaker we know today and needs to be mentioned if Diaz's approach to filmmaking is discussed.

Naked Under The Moon is a studio production and a commercial work of Diaz. Well, in effect, it has been turned into a commercial . . .
