Review by Louie Baharom


Film: โ€˜Ang Panahon ng Halimawโ€™

Year Released: 2018

Director: Lav Diaz

Genre: Drama/History

Ang Panahon ng Halimaw, his latest picture, does pretty much the same, and sometimes even in ways that he hasnโ€™t done before. Horrifyingly, its title signifies an evil presence lurking about in our reality today, and it further raises its relevance as a significant piece of modern Philippine cinema.
