Critic Reviews for Mula sa kung ano ang noon (From What Is Before)

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (1)

  • While not exactly a full-fledged magnum opus, From What Is Before hints at a new direction combining an unhurried visual pace and a more dramatic, forceful approach in tackling history and politics.

    December 7, 2015 | Full Review…
  • [A] hauntingly beautiful new picture, which chronicles the gradual decline of a small coastal barrio in the Philippines in the final days before president Ferdinand Marcos imposed martial law in 1972.

    December 7, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Diaz's prolonged approach to storytelling is a tough sit with no easy payoff, but it enables him to cast a remarkable spell defined by a recurring sense of dislocation.

    December 7, 2015 | Rating: A- | Full Review…
  • What generates suspense -- or more accurately, dread -- is our knowledge that this place that seems to exist out of time is in fact located on a historical fault-line.

    May 12, 2015 | Full Review…
  • What Diaz has done is to distill centuries of the country's sorrows and agonies into a fascinatingly fractured narrative that will never ever leave you.

    July 19, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Diaz's style acts as a sort of teleportation device, slowly immersing viewers into his film's world to the point where it's easy to imagine living right alongside the villagers.
