Reviews:

4.0          Noel Vera (Business World)

“Call this a Sunset Boulevard done on a Filipino indie budget — where Wilder’s film has scale and grandeur this one has a sordid realism.” (Read full review)

3.5          Skilty Labastilla (Young Critics Circle)

“De Belen is magnetic and Yul Servo is infuriatingly charming as a hard-up man with simple ambitions. One of O’Hara’s funniest works.” (Read full review)

3.5          Irvin Malcolm Contreras (A Girl and a Gun)

“Though the film’s television origin and low budget shows at times, the themes tackled and the way shots are composed and executed are quite cinematic and features probably a career-best performance by Janice de Belen.” (Read full review)
