“The Family That Eats Soil” seeks to paint a dystopian portrait, a phantasmagoric reversal of Filipino values. It is an allegory for a people still walking and breathing under an unending nightmare.

A crisp, 75-minute hyper-condensed punk-trash take on Philippine family politics. At times it plays like a de-Pasolinized version of Takashi Miike’s Visitor Q, at others like an absurdist experimental bomba flick. Yet it always feels as if cinema is about to end and only no-holds-barred videomaking can save the world –Film Comment

A very violent & provocative film. Downright bizarre. Involves cockfighting, prostitution, midgets, skull-crushing and plots to kill babies. –Montreal Festival Of New Cinema

Displays clear traces of furious improvisations and a nonchalant provocative manner. –Rotterdam International Film Festival
