The Philippines is known for its 7,000 islands, as well as the shoe collection of its former first lady, Imelda Marcos, which easily dwarfed that number, but it's certainly not the first nation that comes to mind when one thinks of erotic cinema. Silip (1985) aims to upend that perception. Silip chronicles a quiet village of faithful natives where snooty, puritanical Tonya (Maria Isabel Lopez) rules the roost. All this changes—for the sexier—when some white boys hit the beach. Silip is an elegant, arousing oddity that packs real tropical heat.
