Rough but well worth a look
13 April 1999 | by (Rochester, New York, USA) – See all my reviews

It's far from polished, but as always a documentary camera in sympathetic hands can capture unexpected and vital truths about a tough political situation. In this case, although the Zapatista commandants themselves are a fairly sympathetic lot, their dreams of revolution are being fought by the far more moving 2,000 (now more) very poor, powerless and uncertain people in the northern part of Chiapas -- people who have no guns and very little voice. If it did nothing else, the film awakened me to that part of the problem. Marcos comes off as something of a poseur, but since he has been there twelve years you want to have faith that he and his anonymous comrades will prove to be the heroes the indigenous people need.
