Reviews:

4.0          Oggs Cruz (Little Lessons from the School of Inattention)

“The film’s elegantly constructed visuals, Neil Ryan Sese’s deliberately sparse acting, Mercedes Cabral and Sue Prado’s seductive turns as volatile femme fatales, conspire with Bautista’s confident direction to make this film an endeavor worth venturing into.” (Read full review)

3.0          Sanriel Ajero (Another Sani Day)

“Ato Bautista, who seems to have niched the Pinoy noir sub-genre, comes back with this confusing and profound look into a mystery – both of murder and of the mind. It may not be as cohesive as we want it to be, but it is most appealing when it pushes its bounds in imagery and visual metaphors.” (Read full review)

2.5          Francis Cabal (Pelikula Tumblr)

“A great writer lets the story convey the message, and reliance on symbolism is nothing but a perfect example of “cutting corners.” It truly is such a shame, because a film like this one would’ve worked better if the filmmakers had just let the visuals and the story do all the talking.” (Read full review)

2.0          Philbert Dy (Click the City)

“I’m not too big a fan of the picture. It’s got plenty of style, and great ideas bubbling under the surface. But it feels a bit trite, the substance lost in a blaze of perfunctory sex and violence.” (Read full review)

Capsule:

4.0          Manuel Pangaruy (Taga-Ilog Special)

“Isa sa mga underrated film n’ung nakaraang taon. Lahat mahuhusay: Sese, Sue, Mercedes, Tyrone. Poetic pero not too poetic. Far better than Inception. Watch it.”
