One of the very few well-made films from Philippine Cinema!
100 Tula Para Kay Stella is one of the very few well-made films from the Philippines. Fueled with dynamic performances from all the cast, very well-written plot and screenplay, well-crafted cinematography and a writer-director who shows that he knows what he is doing through powerful writing and directing, the film is undeniably a success. It might have genre tropes and clichés, but it uses it cleverly and utilizing them to deliver emotions and key moments as powerful, yet as subtle, and as raw and real as it could. The well- done sound mixing and on-point soundtrack, alongside its wonderful cinematography helps in telling the story and the feeling that go with it with perfection. Each of the cast did well with their performances, especially JC Santos who plays the main protagonist of the film. Dilemma and social issues, as well as personal and emotional issues are tackled and dealt in the movie in unique, raw and unexpected ways. 100 Tula Para Kay Stella is refreshing, surprising and satisfying. Dare I say, 100 Tula Para Kay Stella is one of the all-time best movies from the Philippine Cinema.
