2.5          Cathy Peña (Make Me Blush)

“Director Alvarez is adept, deviceful and capable. And Lamog is a serviceable romp into dysfunctional domestic territory. By maneuvering it from a cabal dramatic feature into a full blown suspense thriller, some narrative elements get unhinged.” (Read full review)

1.5          Philbert Dy (Click the City)

“There’s plenty of style to be found in Lamog, though most of it goes to waste. The film does look pretty good, with its deep lensing and elegant camera movements.

It all but ignores the demands of sound and basic storytelling, in the end producing a picture that comes off confusing in spite of its straightforward plot.” (Read full review)
