Critic Reviews for Season of the Devil (Ang Panahon ng Halimaw)

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

  • Season of the Devil has a tragic weight.

  • Diaz remains emphatically his own artist, whether to exhilarating or punishing effect: "Don't give in to the masses' sensibilities!" warns one of his typically catchy lyrics, and you can't say he doesn't practice what he preaches.

  • There's no way one could sit back and marvel comfortably at what Season of the Devil offers ─ and perhaps that's exactly Diaz's point.

  • Diaz is a filmmaker, writer and musician, and in Season Of The Devil he has found a way to combine all of those. It's probably one of his darkest films, and one that subverts the happiest genre in cinema history: musical.

  • Lav Diaz's call-to-arms to artists speaks to the present just as it depicts a terrible period in the Philippines' past. "Season of the Devil" is still a gruelling, advanced-level watch, but one that delivers beauty and horror in equal measure.

  • Season of the Devil may be one of Diaz's more downbeat, even languid works, but it's no less angry and intense a cri de coeur, albeit one that's often challenging to connect with.
