What others think

The former first lady of the Philippines is revealed as a monstrous, loathsome, absurdly queenly figure in Lauren Greenfield’s superb documentary.

The Kingmaker clarifies the harrowing situation facing the future of the Philippines, but more than that, it’s a warning sign for the entire world.
Eric Kohn IndieWire
It’s a documentary that starts as a nonfiction portrait and ends as a horror movie.
