No Filter: Millennials without pretense by Paolo Abad (Rappler)

With No Filter, there’s no scroll down, fast-forward, or close tab to escape. You’re also handling a double-edged sword if you come to the play with premature judgments. Ultimately, it’s an exercise in a forgotten practice: listening.

Youth unfiltered in ‘No Filter’ by Paul John Cana (GMA News Online)

Still, to paraphrase Celine in “Before Sunrise,” the answer is in the attempt, and in this regard, No Filter is an unequivocal triumph. The writing hopscotches between self-aware and thought-provoking to hysterical and irreverent. Although painfully insular at times (I wonder how many can relate to the segment of a young woman who elects to fly to New York to live the dream of her mom), the dialogue for the most part drips with wit and crackles with truth.
