Movie Review: Dahling Nick

Dahling Nick is a documentary drama exploring the life and works of National Artist for Literature, Nick Joaquin, who only accepted the National Artist Award on the condition the Marcos administration release a well-known writer who was being unjustly detained during Martial Law.  Depicting the “inner world” of this canonical writer, who wrote both novels as well as journalistic works, the juxtaposition of documentary interviews, episodes from his life, and evocative imagery from his literary pieces will create a cinematic collage.

An interesting documentary film to watch in this festival. The film caters the poem and literature lover and embraces the history of one of the most important Filipino writer that dazzlingly performed by Raymond Bagatsing with great creativity.

My Verdict:  3.5/5
