      Audience Member Was expecting something similar to OTJ, but it's a totally different story. Started slow yet interesting. Then it turned into a heist thriller. Finally Erik Matti has done justice for PH cinema in creating our very own heist film, one of the few genres PH films is lacking. Love the ending and how it relates to the hypocracy of some churches and scams in PH society. JLC stepped his game and delivered a good performance out of his comfort zone. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Great film by Erik Matti Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Honor Thy Father [Matti, 2015] Erik Matti made a competently crafted character in Edgar to complete a competently crafted masterpiece. 10/10 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Have you seen HONOR THY FATHER? If not, drop everything you're doing and go to your nearest cinema. It's fucking worth it. The writing, direction, cinematography and score of this movie was amazing. And John Lloyd, oh John Lloyd god bless you. His acting was breath-taking. There is so much to love in this movie. It is not a perfect movie. It had its faults. For example It kind of dragged down in its second act. But fortunately, it picked up and ended with a bang. This movie is what the Philippine movie industry need. It might have a strong "indie vibe", it is still very accessible to mainstream audience. Fucking awesome. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Honor Thy Father = 3.5 out of 5. Good. So 'real' you could almost smell the tension in the first half, but went flat/predictable in the second. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member HONOR THY FATHER is Erik Matti's own MMFF black sheep entry; the annual festival deviation that allows film buffs a well-earned seat in a barrage of slapstick and gooey swooners. "HTF" continues a legacy that stretches back to Brocka's tales of corruptible personas in BONA and JAGUAR, of the Metro Manila Film Festival we used to have. And after Matti's masterful ON THE JOB, HTF is another technically polished labor of love with a black hole heart that's as refreshing as its intriguingly timely subject matter.

      Andrew Heskins easternKicks.com Matti's crime drama starring John Lloyd Cruz is much more than a successor to On The Job... Rated: 5/5 Sep 23, 2020 Full Review Oggs Cruz Rappler As it is, it is a marvelously engineered film, one that is carefully paced to give way to an ending that is as emotionally wrenching as it is oddly elegant. Jul 17, 2019 Full Review Michael Sicinski Cinema Scope Honor Thy Father, Matti's latest, is as accomplished as its predecessor, and shares much more of a formal kinship with popular Korean cinema than with most recent Filipino exports.
