All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3) | 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.

    Dec 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Jul 18, 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.

    Jun 12, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Given the film's detailed examination of a physical environment, the lackluster sound design is a bit surprising.
