“Felino Dolloso’s Major, in particular, is a finely tuned and powerful performance that has the ability to move us and draw us into the emotional complexities of being trapped on the darker side of the struggle for freedom. Indeed as the oppressor it becomes pointedly clear that he too is equally oppressed. Dolloso’s monologues are the high point in this production and indicate an actor of great depth who’s full of exciting promise.” – Helen Barry, Australian Stage

“Standing out is Felino Dolloso’s portrayal of an army major whose angry ruthlessness is tempered by nagging doubts.” – John Shand, The Sydney Morning Herald

“There’s also no question that Felino Dolloso, AKA: Bobo The Hobo steals the show. His ability to make Bobo, or Rafael, which is his “real” name in the film, a real yet totally “not real” and ridiculously happy person, completely blindsided me. The touching moments during those ending segments were the fuel for the fire. Dolloso’s ability to bring such a colorful character to life is the heartbeat of this film. The surprise, dramatic ending cements the viewers suspicions that they are watching a truly talented actor. Excellent job.” – Indyred

“Felino Dolloso gives a strong performance as the Major, a hard as nails man, who nevertheless finds himself conflicted over the military’s uncompromising stance against the monks.” – David Kary, sydneyartsguide.com

“The final ingredient in the ironic turmoil of a Quiet Night is a serene-faced menace in green fatigues, The Major (Felino Dolloso). He represents all that is dangerous in a military machine that long ago forgot its duty to the people; and his apparent mildness only enhances that horror.” – Diana Simmonds, Stage Noise

“Felino Dolloso puts in a dynamic and arresting turn as Jose Molina, Celia’s former lover and torture victim who’s long since given up on the revolution.” – Lloyd Bradford Syke 

“Measure – which takes on the story of a suspected Cambodian Khmer Rouge soldier who is forced to face his past. It’s brimming with depth and realism, thanks to an emotionally charged and vulnerable performance by Felino Dolloso” – Australian Stage

“Felino Dolloso as Tun Salleh Abas, the Supreme Court judge in the middle of the crisis is excellent. We see him squashed and humiliated after his engineered dismissal, looking after his roses ( roses in this play are another symbol of Malaysia) . He is in some ways regarded as the Malaysian St.Thomas A Beckett and has strong, hidden undercurrents .We also see his struggle for justice, a proper functioning constitution and human rights. His symbolic un/dressing of his judge’s robes has echoes in a way of the similar scene with the Pope in Brecht’s LIFE OF GALILEO.”- Lynne Lancaster, Sydney Arts Guide

“I find myself in awe of these people who despite their stellar achievements remain humble and down-to-earth, his great work has been drawing fantastic comments and citations that inevitably he can no longer avoid the spotlight being shone upon him.” – Violi Calvert
