Movie Info

A young man looking to make an honest dollar finds himself becoming a lust object for both men and women in this "macho dancer" melodrama from the Philippines. Dwight (Tyron Perez) is a handsome man in his early twenties who, needing cash to help support his family, takes a job dancing in a gay bar, where he shakes his moneymaker with a bevy of other good-looking guys. While Dwight is dating a neighborhood girl who goes to college, he soon falls under the spell of Madame Loca (Cherry Pie Picache), a wealthy and middle-aged businesswoman with a taste for younger men. Bert (Lauren Novero), Madame Loca's driver, was once a dancer who became her lover and tries to warn Dwight about her scheming ways, to no avail. Meanwhile, Alfred (Allen Dizon) is a dancer who at 28 is getting too old to face the competition; he's looking for a "real" job to provide for his wife and kids, but he's still reluctant to give up the spotlight, and his on-again, off-again relationship with Dwight only intensifies his feelings of anger and helplessness. Twilight Dancers received its North American premiere at the 2006 Toronto Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Despite patina of political commentary, pic's shrill supporting stereotypes and sloppy narrative/tech assembly dominate.
