Motel Acacia

A tyrannical Caucasian grooms his Filipino son to take over Motel Acacia which provides shelter to illegal immigrants on behalf of the government. Directed by Bradlew Liew, the film stars JC Santos, Agot Isidro, Jan Bijvoet, and Nicholas Saputra. Variety’s Peter Debruge writes, “Though it delivers on the suspense level, Motel Acacia really ought to have spent a bit more time figuring out what it was trying to say about America — that dimension remains a bit too abstract, ultimately failing to explain why a Filipino demon is doing the country’s dirty work.”
