Each one of us must have gone wild and crazy during our high school days. It is that time when people join peer groups, fall in love for the first time and yearn to prove themselves to gain fame and approval among their buddies.
It is also the time when teens start to go free and get frenzy!
Life’s events like these are sometimes the usual subjects in films. Parties with teens imbibing in booze, drugs and creating a lot of noise – a reflection of what most American adolescents experience and sometimes dream of doing and the movie “Project X” is one of those films featuring all of the things mentioned above.
The Filipino peer group may have thought of the same but our culture and religious lineage has kept us in celebrating at a moderate level , though I am not sure of the present condition of our youth. I trust on Filipino households to morally take responsibility in honing their kids.
I do not say that Project X is a bad film. It is one great film if shown to the right age group or exhibited with proper guidance. It will be very alarming for parents like me if my teenage son would see this film without understanding the context of the story.
Stories have always been used to impart not only a message from its author but also to leave a lesson for its audience to ponder. I hope every Filipino adult could be responsible enough to show the younger generation films like this!
