Norte, Hangganan ng Kasaysayan

It was like sitting through a five-hour biography of a nation. It was thorough, it was deep, it was honest. It challenges your morale, your sympathy, your philosophy even, to a certain extent. For a moment it was terrifying how a person who knows so much about ways to improve his country can do so little to improve himself and can even destroy his own character in the process. Is justice so relative? Can it really mean so much to someone only to realize it’s just an instrument to redeem himself? When you commit a crime, who can really tell what’s the price to pay? What is crime? What is punishment? What is atonement? How do we process this movie? How?
