Alpha – The Right to Kill

Brillante Ma Mendoza, Philippines

2018, 94 min, K18

Brillante Ma Mendoza’s feverishly shot drug bust movie parallels a seemingly heroic SWAT team cop and a punk looking informer in the slums of Manila. Under the paranoia and heated action lies corruption, which will stain all parties involved.
