Human life is very cheap and dispensable in Birdshot. The well-being of one of the national eagles at risk and endangered of the Philippines, however, is a completely different matter, injuring the animal is an act that pays off the official firepower and even kill where the director does a meditative and thoughtful suspense that dissipates the hypocrisy of valuing the existence of a creature while ignoring or willingly causing the death of other people. With images at the forefront and scarce dialogues, Birdshot is also marked by his island performances, the central trio of Apostle, Aquino and Reyes in charge of conveying the inner thoughts and feelings of their characters through physicality instead of words. And although your previous experience on the screen varies dramatically, it's a three-pronged task.
