As many of you have probably heard, Philippine film critic Alexis Tioseco and Slovenian film critic Nika Bohinc (they were a couple) were murdered recently in Quezon City. I didn't know either of them personally, though I once had a bit of e-correspondence with Nika, who was lovely.
Some words from Gabe Klinger on these two people.
A remembrance of Alexis from Noel Vera.
There is also Alexis' letter to Nika which was a major piece of film criticism (here).
May they rest in peace - and we shall gather at the river.
