* Reviews:

“Made with a certain panache and wit, this revenge thriller is a great calling card for the intriguingly named Dicky Tanuwidjaya. Stylish opening credits alert us to a genre sensibility that could go far.”  – Urban Cinefile’s review of The Devil’s 6 Commandments

Tanuwidjaya keeps everything moving at a nice clip by switching the film’s POV between the different characters. He also inserts lots of entertaining transitions.” –  Underground Film Journal review of The Devil’s 6 Commandments

“Dicky Tanuwidjaya‘s debut feature is either a work of absolute genius or the product of a deranged mind. Your pick there, just grab a session of the movie to make your mind up, I’m going with the first option by the way.
